Tasty Tuesday: Applescotch Dessert (easy apple dumplings!)
I love apple dumplings but don’t make them terribly often just because they can be a bit time consuming to make. So recently when a friend was telling me about this Applescotch Dessert recipe and how it tastes like apple dumplings but is much easier, I was all ears! I made it last week for some dinner guests and oh my- it was so yummy! Do you see all that gooey, caramel-y syrup? How could it not be good?!
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 c. cold water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. butter
2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter, softened (or shortening)
5 to 6 c. apples, chopped and peeled
3/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
For sauce, combine the first 3 ingredients in saucepan and cook until slightly thickened. (It won’t thicken much at all.) Add vanilla and butter. Pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
Make dumpling mixture by mixing together first 5 ingredients until crumbly. Add apples and stir. Combine milk and vanilla and stir into mixture just until moistened. Drop by spoonfuls over sauce in dish.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.
