This one came from Trisha Yearwood's cookbook Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood and wow, it is amazing. And easy! It was delicious straight out of the oven with a little whipped cream. Then I took the leftovers to my parents' house and they re-heated the dumplings and added vanilla ice cream. My dad couldn't stop raving about these babies! He loved them and so do I. It was like eating your own personal apple pie and I will be making this again and again and again and . . .
*From Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood
2 Granny Smith apples
1 cup water
1 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (I used half a stick and it was still delicious)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
8 canned buttermilk biscuits (the dough, not precooked)
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core, and slice the apples into 8 slices each. Cover with water to keep slices from turning brown.
In a medium saucepan, mix the water, 3/4 cup sugar, butter, and vanilla. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
Separate each biscuit into two layers. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap and seal on the bottom. Place the wrapped slices, seal side down, in a greased 9x13 casserole dish.
Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices. Don't panic when it looks like a hot mess. It will be good, trust me. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top of the dumplings.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy!
