Main Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup butter

1 egg 1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup water

3 - 4 apples


1Peel, core and cut apples.

2In a small-medium saucepan, combine apples, cinnamon, water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer.

3While apples are cooking, combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender, two knives, or working quickly, use your hands.

4Add milk, vanilla, and the egg to the dry ingredients and stir to combine, being careful not to overwork the dough. Dough should be just soft enough to drop from the spoon.

5Drop batter by spoonfuls over the hot apple mixture. Cover tightly and let simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until dumpling is cooked through. The dumpling should be puffy and double its size.

6Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Additional Notes

Katie uses honeycrisp apples when they're available, but any tart apple will do. (Or any apple, really, if it's what you have on hand.)
