Old-Fashioned Apple Dumplings
These homemade apple dumplings are easier than you’d think – Granny Smith apples are peeled and cored, stuffed with butter and cinnamon-sugar, wrapped in a pastry crust, and covered in a buttery brown sugar sauce. Baked until golden, they absolutely melt in your mouth!
Apple dumplings are classic comfort food that dates back to the 1700s; when a recipe has been around that long, you know that it’s something extra special.
These perfectly portioned individual desserts consist of a peeled apple that has been cored and stuffed with butter, cinnamon, and sugar, and then wrapped in a pastry crust and drizzled with a buttery brown sugar sauce and baked until golden brown.
In a word, these are phenomenal and so much less fuss than you might think. Serve the apple dumplings with a drizzle of extra sauce (try subbing in apple cider or rum for the water in the sauce for extra oomph!) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you’ll have friends for life!
How to make them from scratch
In order to make these, all you need to do is gather up some good Granny Smith apples (or the tart apple of your choice), mix together an easy one-bowl pastry crust and a boiled sauce.
The apples are peeled and cored and their center is stuffed with a bit of butter and a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Each apple is wrapped up in pastry crust, which can be as perfect or rustic as you like.
The pastry-covered apples are drenched with a boiled butter and brown sugar sauce.
They are baked for nearly an hour until the apples are soft and tender, and the pastry crust is golden brown.
The Best Apples to Use
The types of apples most preferred for baking need to be firm enough to hold their shape during the baking process and not turn to mush. While Granny Smith is a natural first choice, all of these other apples are fantastic (and delicious!) substitutes:
- Golden Delicious
- Pink Lady
Whole Apples vs Slices
All traditional apple dumpling recipes use a whole apple wrapped in a pastry crust, however. you could also slice the apples, divide them up and wrap up bundled slices in the pastry crust.
And while I’ve never done it, you could try baking this up crisp-style – toss sliced apples with the butter and cinnamon/sugar and place in a baking dish, pour the syrup over top, then lay the pastry crust over the top of the whole mixture and bake.
Tools for the Job
Using the right tools makes peeling and coring much easier! Here are the ones I recommend:
- I use my favorite swivel peeler to peel apples!
- And this is the apple corer I use.
Pastry crust alternatives
While I think the pastry crust recipe included below is an absolutely phenomenal pairing with the apples, you can use other options, if you’d like:
- All Butter Pie Crust
- Flaky Vodka Pie Crust
- Store-bought pie crust
- Crescent roll dough
- Frozen puff pastry for a super short cut!
Prepping ahead of time
There are a few different ways that you can prep the apple dumplings ahead of when you plan to bake them:
- Prep the Dough – You can make the dough and keep it wrapped in plastic wrap, refrigerated, for up to 3 days in advance.
- Assembled Dumplings – You can stuff the apples, wrap them in the pastry dough, and place them in the baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Take out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.
- Freeze Assembled Dumplings – Follow directions above but place in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours until completely frozen. Keep in an airtight container or bag for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then proceed with the recipe.
These can be served as-is (oh my gosh is that sauce phenomenal!!), but consider these for something extra-special:
Storing and reheating
Leftover apple dumplings can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
To capture that just-baked flavor and texture, reheat in a foil-covered pan at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
You can also microwave the leftover dumplings, but the crust will be soft.

For the Pastry:
- 3 cups (360 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (184 g) vegetable shortening, chilled
- ⅓ cup (80 ml) ice water
For the Apples:
- 8 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
- 8 teaspoons (3 tablespoons) unsalted butter
- 8 teaspoons (3 tablespoons) granulated sugar
- 1½ teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) ground cinnamon
For the Sauce:
- 1½ cups (298 g) light brown sugar
- 1 cup (240 ml) water
- ½ cup (113 g) salted butter, cubed
- Make the Pastry Dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the shortening until the mixture is crumbly. Gradually add the ice water, tossing the mixture with a fork, until the dough forms a cohesive mass. If the dough needs more water to come together, add it 1 teaspoon at a time. Divide the dough into eight equal portions, wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
- Assemble the Apples: Roll each portion of dough on a lightly floured work surface into a 7-inch square. Place an apple in the center of each square. Place 1 teaspoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon-sugar mixture in the center of each apple.
- Gently bring up the corners of the pastry to the center of each apple; pinch the edges to seal. Place the pastry-encased apples in a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Make the Sauce: In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, water and butter over medium-high heat until it just begins to boil, stirring occasionally. Pour the sauce evenly over the apples.
- Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the apples are tender and the pastry is golden brown, basting occasionally with the sauce. These are best served warm immediately after baking.
- Pastry Crust Alternatives: All-Butter pie crust / Flaky vodka pie crust / Crescent roll dough / Store-bought pie crust / Frozen puff pastry
- Best Alternative Apple Varieties: Honeycrisp, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, Braeburn, Cortland
- Apple Tools: Peeler / Corer
- Sauce Suggestions: To amp up the flavor, replace the water in the sauce with apple cider or rum!
- Prep Ahead: The dough can be made and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Assembled apple dumplings can be kept covered in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking.
- Freezing Instructions: Freeze unbaked, assembled apple dumplings for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, remove 30 minutes before baking, and proceed with recipe.
- Serving Suggestions: Vanilla ice cream / Butter pecan ice cream / Homemade whipped cream
- Storage: Leftover apple dumplings can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- Reheating Instructions: Reheat the dumplings in a foil-covered pan at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. You can also microwave the leftover dumplings, but the crust will be soft.

Everyone always raves over this delicious dessert!!! Perfect every time!
Worthy of 10 stars!!!
I’m not from the guild but it was recommended to me and I liked it.
I use a prepared pie dough which makes this recipe a snap to make. These are the best apple dumplings I’ve ever tasted. My son requests them ever year in place of a birthday cake. The sauce is the crowning glory!
These look delicious. I’m curious, though. All of the apple dumpling recipes I’ve seen have a sauce poured over them before baking. But, how does the bottom of the pastry cook? Doesn’t it just sit in liquid the whole time and become a wet, soggy mess? I want to try these, but I just don’t get it.
Also, whenever i make apple dumplings (without sauce), the filling in the apple ends up running out the bottom and making a mess. Do you know what I could be doing wrong or how to prevent it?
The butter is going to melt when you bake it so it will make a “mess” but when you bake with the sauce it just blends in. Sort of like when you make cinnamon rolls. The sugar and butter will run out of the rolls somewhat and caramelize as it’s being baked.
I’m just now baking mine but that’s how I image the end results will be. I’ll let you know if I’m wrong!
I have made this several times. AMAZING!!!! is an understatement! Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe.
I grew up with apple dumplings from Applefest in Franklin, PA, and these were SO much better than any I remember. The crust gave me a little trouble, but it tasted great, as did the sauce. Thanks for this recipe!
These Apple dumplings were amazing!🍎🍏. My family loved them! Can you substitute the shortening for coconut oil? Thank you!
Hi Joshua, I’m so glad you enjoyed them!! I’ve never used coconut oil in pastry dough, so I couldn’t say for sure. If you try it, stop back and let me know how it turns out!
I am so thrilled that you have the old style Apple dumpling dessert. I am thrilled to be making this fir my family. Your having the sauce that goes with it is a very nice plus. Thank you😋😋
I made just like it said but really soft and almost undone looking..too soupy
My friend and I made these together!!! I misread the hint and put apple cider in the dough instead of icy water. It used a lot more cider than water🤣🤣 but it still turned out REALLY good!! Then I only had enough cider to do 1/2 cup in the sauce. these are really yummy, easy recipe to follow. Thank you so much !!
I did not make these dumplings my daughter did and gave us each one. this is the BEST apple dumpling I have eaten in 73 years . My husband is saying the best in 85 years. Wonderful. Thank you for sharing with us.
Made recipe exactly as written and the dumplings turned out amazing! This recipe is a keeper!
Made these over the weekend and WOW – they were heavenly! I’d never made apple dumplings but grew up eating the ones my mother made. I never actually thought I was a big fan because it always seemed that the apple itself was somewhat bland. But not these! I can’t describe how good these were. I followed the recipe exactly as written and they turned out great (I used cortland apples). Will definitely be making this recipe again! Thanks for sharing!
I have been making these apple dumplings since 2013. They are THE BEST I’ve ever had and everyone I make them for just loves them! I make sure to keep basting them with the sauce while they cool to get a nice caramel coating. And now my daughter helps me make them and it makes for an even better time <3
Made this recipe today. I was shocked at how easily and quickly it came together. This is a beautiful no-fuss recipe. using rum instead of water makes a sauce especially delicious. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Dealing with cherries and berries at the moment,
Just back from beautiful Door County, WI. Will try these in September when it cools off in the Midwest. Thanks
I have not made BAKED dumplings but fill the apples the same ingredients and wrap them in the dough, BUT them I place them in a large clean cloth and tie it up like a hobo bag and submerse them in boiling water till apples are soft…about an hour……..then when ready to eat I put cinnamon, sugar and cream while hot over them……delicious…my kids love them…I do not know if this is my german grand mother’s style….boiled apple dumplings !!!!
Made this quick a few times. Very yummy with homemade ice cream. Like this better than an apple pie.
Nice recipe. Highlights the apples without a lot of butter or too much sugar. Im sure these would be wonderful just on their pretty little own with no sauce too. 😊
looks delicious .i am eager to try it .
I had to increase the water in the sauce to 1 1/2 cups as it turned hard and was too thick to get out of the pan otherwise; was great !
Scrumptious!! Great recipe, which was very easy to follow, much to my relief! My husband loved them (neither of us have had apple dumplings before)!
I will definitely be making them again!
The first time I made this I followed the recipe and it was delicious!! Loved it!
Today I was short on time so I used a good quality puff pastry from Whole Foods. And it was still a great recipe, even though I cheated with the puff pastry. It was an all-butter puff pastry but I don’t remember the brand, from Whole Foods.
These are the best apple dumplings I have ever had!
Can you substitute butter for the shortening in the dough? I don’t use shortening.
Hi Natalie, You can substitute butter, the crust will just be flakier and a little less tender.
just made these they are really very good the only thing I changed was in the sauce I added a little apple pie spice. They are a keeper.
Made these and they were delicious! Can I make these ahead of time and freeze for future ???
Hi Janis, I’m so happy you enjoyed them! I’m not sure how well they would freeze (I’ve never tried it), but I *think* they would do okay!
I’ve been looking for a recipe for apple dumplings like my mother made for years, and I think this might be it! I can’t wait to try it. I’ll come back and let you know how they fare against hers. 😉
If I used a Cortland apple in my apple dumplings and after they are out of the oven & cooled down, is it possible to be able to put them back in as this type of apple did not back in 30 min like my recipe advised.
Hi Carole, I think you could continue to bake longer if your apples are not soft enough.
I have made these before with our local tart prairie apples and then froze the whole thing and passed them out in my Christmas baskets with baking and sauce instructions. All I can say is there was many happy family members
I have made these before and I am making them right now but I always have trouble wrapping the dough around the apple so It looks nice and doesn’t fall apart! HELP!
Hi ! I’m FRENCH but I don’t speak english very well. Just to say you I tried. It was a success . Thank you.
I just made this for Thanksgiving. I used a different pie dough recipe as well as a mix of Braeburns and Golden Delicious. I prepared the apples and wrapped them in dough the night before our feast and it held up pretty well in the fridge. The apple started releasing very little juice from the core however but it’s only in the bottom and you can’t tell unless you physically lift one up. One commenter regretted putting all the sauce during baking so I put it in the oven first for 20 min. then I spooned a little of the sauce on top of each one. After the apples were done and ready to be served, I spooned more of the sauce on top. They were delicious! It’s like having your own apple pie. The bottom part where it was touching the liquid wasn’t
…bad also. It wasn’t crispy but it’s submerged in delicious syrup. Sounds good to me.
One of my disappointments in the fall is that all the apple recipes come out, but they all use granny smith apples, which you can get year round, instead of the Macintosh, Macoun, Courtland, etc., that we only get fresh in the fall. I get that granny smith is a good baking apple, but generally too tart for me, and I actually don’t like with the apples are still crisp when you eat them (but I don’t want applesauce either). I wonder why cooks don’t make more things with fresh fall apples. Anyway, I made this with Macoun apples, and they were great. I had difficulty with the dough, it wouldn’t come together for me following the directions, so I added more water and shaped into balls, but when I tried to roll them out, they just fell apart. I ended up remixing it all together and adding more water for it to stick.
I also think there is way more prep time than 30 minutes – you aren’t including the chill time for the dough, but rolling out 8 separate neat 7″ squares to fold over the apples would take most people at least 30 minutes, and that doesn’t count all the other prep – peeling an coring apples, the sauce, etc. This took me about an hour to prep, (not including my mess up with the dough), and then it took the full 55 minutes to bake. I only got 7 apples from the dough, but that could be my fault with the difficulties I had.
made this for my hubby this weekend (with gluten free flour) and it was still delicious! We loved it! GREAT recipe!
I just made them for evening for my family and what can I say, they were gone in a minute and everyone was asking me to make them again :)
The apples are amazing and so delicious!!!!! I will make them definitely again!
Thank you so much for the recipe
I would like to make these tomorrow (Wed) to have for Thanksgiving. Any ideas on still having them taste good. Should I not bake them until Thursday maybe? Or warm them up?
Hi Shannon, They are definitely best the day they are made, but they are still good the next day reheated.
Thanks, I used a mutsu apple. And used Smart Balance in the dough and in the apple. Our family has a history of heart disease:( So it is a necessity to make changes. I hesitated as Smart Balance has water added. But it turned out just fine. Not totally guilt free, but I refused to eat apple dumplings after moving out on my own. I really missed my moms apple dumplings. These are the next best thing.
Can this pastry dough be frozen/refrigerated for up to a week and then defrosted and wrapped around apples?
Yes, you could definitely freeze the dough! I would only refrigerate up to 2 days in advance.
This is the absolute best recipe ever!! used margarine in place of the butter and shortening because that’s what I had on hand and it turned out perfect.
I like Granny Smith apples, but Honey Crisp, Lady Alice, or Pippins are even better for baking if you can get them. I think the Granny Smith are less nuanced in flavor. Your recipe looks amazing though! Will give it a try! Thank you!
Against my intuition, I followed the recipe and poured the sauce into the baking dish. Big mistake. It turned the crust into a soggy mess. If I make this again, I’ll bake the apples without it and then serve the sauce on the side after boiling it down a bit on top of the stove.
Skipping apple pie this Thanksgiving and making these instead!
I’m thinking I will replace the water with apple cider for the sauce…
I am the only person in my home who loves cooked apples. I would like to your an already made crust such as Pillsbury. I want to make only one apple. What are your thoughts about using an already prepared crust? Should I double the covering on the apple?
You could use the prepared crust, although I’m not sure how much you would need for one apple.
These were a huge hit! Thank you for sharing! I have made several of your recipes and they have always been well received. Love your blog too!
Hi!:) I’m planning on making these next and I was wondering if I could use “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” Salted butter for the sauce? I don’t have salted butter sticks so would it change anything?? Thanks!:))
Hi Vika, I really, really dislike imitation butter products. If you can go to the store and grab some real butter, it will be completely worth it!
Oh my goodness thank-you! It was so worth it!! I made them this evening along with your pumpkin bread recipe and now our house smells like Thanksgiving!:) So good!:))
I made these tonight and they tasted great but the apples didn’t hold up. They turned into mush.. I used granny smith and only cooked them 50 min. until the crust turned golden. Can you tell me what I need to do different next time.
Hi Marti, They may have been on the edge of being overripe. The apples will soften significantly, but they should not turn to mush.
This happened to me too :-/ They just blew up and turned to mush. The texture was off, but it tasted good! The dough was good too.
I made these this weekend and they turned out great! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I added a bit of ground cloves and ginger in with the cinnamon sugar. Delicious!! :)
Looks amazing!! I was wondering though if I could use small granny smith apples instead of medium ones and what the adjustments would be??
Hi Vika, You shouldn’t need to make any adjustments. If you have extra dough, you might be able to squeeze an extra apple out of the recipe, depending on how small they are.
OMG !! My husband said “Honey you make a lot of things” but this is the best you have ever made ! They were just amazingly delicious :)
Delish! Next time I will substitute the shortening for butter. Very good recipe; a keeper. Thanks.
OMG! How could I have forgotten! My Gran used to make these for us nearly every time we visited! It was one of the first recipes she taught to me. Thanks for that. I will have to dust off my old recipe card and start the tradition with my own kids.
In a big world of desserts this one is in my top 5. It”s simple, satisfying and easy to make. Can anything be finer?
I made these last night & they were a HUGE hit! They took forever for me to make but I’m sure it’s my own fault. I used freshly-ground spelt flour & had a hard time with the crust. I only covered 6 smallish apples. I will invest in an apple corer so I can make these more quickly. I managed to core then with a knife but it took a while. We enjoyed them so mush we were still talking about them today, wishing for leftovers. I may need to make more tonight!
How do you core the apples? I’ve never baked with apples before so I’m excited =) I made your Peach coffee cake last week and everyone loved itt!!
Hi Rida, You can buy an apple corer at most kitchen stores (and probably places like Target, too), that’s the easiest way. I realized I don’t have one, so I just used a paring knife and worked VERY slowly and carefully.
These are great. You can use your own pie crust but I wouldn’t. Me and my kids made them together and was a lot of fun for them
I made these this weekend….I too am embracing the fall weather. They were as easy to assemble as described….my house smelled amazing!! And my husband and children gobbled them up!!! I enjoy your website, I have made lots of your recipes….my family thanks you for the great snacks and treats!!
Excellent recipe!! Took it to family reunion and the licked the platter clean!! I used apples from my apple tree! Yummy! Thank you!
Yey for “The week-end dish”!
I had missed these! Can’t wait for some decent apples to come!
Here we’re in a kind of gray and rainy oblivion, where it’s not autumn yet, but it’s definitely not summer anymore. Fingers crossed!
This was really good and wonderfully easy. We are apple recipe freaks at our house and today I made this as a surprise for my 4th grader, he was so happy. He just got a good look at the Triple Chocolate Mousse and I’m guessing that might be the next BEB adventure. Thank you for this site.
It’s like an individual pie without all the fuss! I recently discovered a love of pie crust and often find myself stealing pieces off of pies I bake :)
I made apple dumplings for the first time last year, and am convinced they are one of the best fall desserts ever! Yours look phenomenal, I can’t wait to try this recipe – maybe to celebrate the start of training camp tomorrow! :)
What an amazing recipe, and I love the pantry ingredients- so easy to pull this off without a lot of fuss. I am on it girl!
This looks amazing!!… On a side note, recently your blog has a lot of pop up ads and slows down my browser whenever I am on it :/ is it just me?
What an amazing coincidence—I had just today picked out a recipe for apple dumplings. I’ve never made them–now, I’m going to use your recipe—thanks for the step-by-step snaps!!!!
These just look like fall! They look – and I bet they smell – amazing!!
How crafty and cute that dumpling looks! Smells and looks way, waaaaaaaaaaaay better, prettier than the store-bought ones :)
Thanks for the nice post, lovely recipe and gorgeous images.
If we freeze the dough how long will it last and about how long does it normally take to thaw out. Also does anyone know of another spice that is good with apples other then cinnamon I have an aunt who is allergic to cinnamon…and would love to be able to make something with apples for the holidays that she can eat/be around. Thanks in advance
Hi Christina, I think the dough would freeze well for 1-2 months. I would recommend thawing in the refrigerator overnight. Nutmeg is another popular spice with apples, but I don’t think I would use as much nutmeg as cinnamon; just a fraction.
I’ve successfully frozen pie crust dough for several months no problem. I usually thaw on the counter as I don’t have time to thaw in the fridge, but that would probably work better if you have the time (it takes forever).
I love when apple season rolls around! Apple dumplings are a favorite around here!
Wow those look really good! I’m not sure that I ever knew exactly what an apple dumpling was, but now I do. I am definitely going to have to try this recipe out :)
Oh I didn’t realize the apples were kept whole in this. I like that idea, they’re like baked apples on steroids!
Apples are almost ready where I am, and I can’t wait! I agree with you about summer, and this year it has seemed to drag on. Thanks for the great recipe… I’ve never seen dumplings cooked right in their sauce, but they look wonderful.
This looks so good and even pretty healthy! Love apple season!!!
Your pictures and description are amazing! Can’t wait to try these this fall. We go apple picking each year, and I LOVE making my apple pie… but I am always looking for something different to do with all the apples. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
Can you use chilled butter instead of shortening?
I’m sure you can, the texture of the crust will just be different.
I just made these tonight with coconut oil (solidified – make most of my pie crusts that way these days) and they were DELICIOUS! (I did use butter in the caramel sauce, but used sucanat for sugar both in the apples & sauce.)
Love your site (“BrownEyedBaker”) as I’m a brown-eyed baker myself & my middle name is Michelle! :)
Thanks for posting this, Julie. Since I stopped stocking vegetable shortening, I only have butter and coconut oil in the house. So here I sit debating: butter, coconut oil, combo, or shop for vegetable shortening. Now I can skip the shortening without worry.
I’ve never seen apple dumplings made like this before! What a great idea!
I’ve never seen this idea before…love it! Pinned. :)
Amazing….and now I am craving an apple dumpling! :-)
These are gorgeous, Michelle! Nothing says fall more than a baked apples. I love all the step by step photos you included, too.
Thank you so much for the step by step!! It helps me when baking to be able to see the recipe progress!
Has anyone tried these by baking them without the sauce?
Michelle, Autumn is my favorite season, and this recipe just seems to capture the essence of autumn. Thanks for yet another great recipe!
It is almost time for my “Autumn Apple Adventure” to start! I love fall because of amazing recipes like this one! Thanks so much for sharing and your photos are gorgeous!!
saving this recipe for when we get some cooler weather here in West Central FL – hopefully October!
Oh wow! These look so good and old time! I love that! I need to get making these ASAP!
I’ve always wanted to make Apple Dumplings but homemade pie crust and I don’t “gee-haw” so I think I’m gonna try this with the refrigerated ones. I bet it won’t be as flaky as yours but who cares once it is smothered in The Sauce!! Thanks for the recipe!!
This was a must whenever we went to the apple orchard growing up. I can only imagine the smell when baking at home. Yep, this is a must do.
I LOVE apple dumplings, but haven’t made my own! This is definitely the recipe that I’ll try – they look perfect :)
How beautiful and delicious! Seriously cannot wait to try these!
Just bought some apples and will be making them. Can I make the dough with a food processor? Thanks for the great recipe!
Hi Marty, Sure you can make the dough with a food processor if you prefer.
These are so cute. In all my single-girl glory, I think I’m gonna devise a way to make them “for one”;)
If you have freezer space, you could make the dough and freeze the portioned out pieces individually. That way, you’ll have the dough already made any time you want to celebrate your single-girl self!
YUM! I completely agree with you about eating just pie crusts if it was acceptable! Such a great autumn recipe
Mmmm looks delicious!
I love that you described it as a big cozy blanket, that’s totally how I feel! I love this time of the year and I can’t wait to go apple picking so I can make these dumplings!
I noticed today when I was driving that the days are starting to get a little shorter, and night is coming a little quicker than usual. I like it though. I am ready for fall.
Gorgeous, I’m drooling over that caramel sauce!
This is a good old-fashioned apple dumpling like my mom and grandma used to make and they look so good! The pastry looks so flaky and perfect! And the caramel sauce – yes!
