Apple Dumplings in a Mason Jar

It’s a cool, rainy day, and I thought what better treat than an apple dumpling. Apple dumplings are a family favourite around here, especially in the fall when fresh Ontario apples are at their peak. I love them in mason jars, perfect for gift giving too. They’re best served warm, and I like to add a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you’re making them ahead of time, just re-heat in the microwave before serving -easy peasy.

I’ve shared the family recipe before here, made in a large family style casserole dish. I have one little secret though, that makes my version a little different from my Mom’s and my Grandma’s. I use frozen pie pastry, shhhh, don’t tell. That means instead of this being a once in while, Sunday dinner kind of a treat, you can make it anytime, cause it’s really easy. ūüėČ

  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 cups boiling water

Method:

1. Peel the apples and cut into quarters, removing the core.

2. Wrap 6 pieces of apple in pie dough, trying not to overlap the dough, but making sure the apple is completely covered.

    I tried this for a party and was thrilled that I could bake them ahead of time and keep them warm in a regular cooler wrapped in a towel. By the time we were ready to eat them they were the perfect temperature! It was super quick and easy and was a real treat for our guests.
