Amish Apple Dumplings

We're fans of pretty much any Amish recipes, especially their dessert and pastry recipes. This recipe for Amish Apple Dumplings is an easy recipe for warm dumplings filled with apples and spiced with cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg and more. Once baked, the apples are tender and the pastries are perfectly golden brown on the outside. This is an age-old favorite recipe for apple dumplings you're sure to love. Serve with vanilla ice cream if you wish.
