One Monday a month I take a day off and Ashley comes over to share a recipe! Sometimes she shares a dessert, sometimes it’s an entree. They aren’t always healthy, but they always look amazing! These are all recipes that she has personally made so while she might have found them online or in a cook book, she’s tailored them to something easy and practical for her family of five.
Hi! I’m Ashley and I blog over at From the Heart of Mom, a recipe/cooking blog where I try out recipes and let you know how they are. Once a month I make my way over here to share a recipe with all of Kelly’s fabulous readers. Welcome to Monthly Meal Monday!
With apples being in season for fall, I’ve had plenty of them around my house. I decided to get rid of some of them with a few apple recipes. I found this one to be very simple and surprisingly delicious! They would make a great dessert after a family meal or even go along wonderfully at a family brunch.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 & 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp cold butter
- 1 & 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 cups chopped apples
- 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 & 1/2 cups water
- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
WHAT YOU’LL DO
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cube the cold butter then cut it into the flour mixture. You can do this with a pasty blender or a fork.
- Add milk and stir until just moistened. The dough will be sticky.
- Roll dough on a well floured surface. It should be a rectangle about 18 x 12. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon then top with apples.
- Starting with a long edge, roll the dough up like cinnamon rolls. The dough is sticky, so you’ll want to keep flour on hand. Slice roll into about 12 slices and place in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
- In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring to blend. Cook and stir until thickened, about 4 minutes. Pour over the top of the dumplings.
- Bake the dumplings for 45-55 minutes, until golden brown. The sauce should be bubbling.
Let cool for about 10 minutes and serve warm! Enjoy!
