Southeast Meets Western Frontier: Apple Dumplings. Just like any other red-blooded American, I LOVE apple pie; therefore, Ree's Apple Dumplings recipe caught my eye immediately.
Step One: SHOP
- 2 apples
- 3 peaches
- 2 lemons
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 cups of flour
- 2/3 cup of buttermilk
- 6 tablespoons Agave Nectar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 12 oz Canada Dry club soda
- Ground cinnamon to taste
- Blue Bunny All Natural Frozen Yogurt to top
Step Two: Peel Fruit
I'm in Georgia so I decided to also try peaches with this recipe. I peeled 2 apples and 3 peaches and quartered each fruit. If I were to repeat this, I would halve the fruit instead. I found that the bread to fruit ratio was too high for my taste, and it slightly masked the delicious fresh fruit.
Step Three: Mix the Dough
|Instead of using croissant dough from a can, I made my own dough.|
Step Four: Roll the Fruit Slices
|Dough can be frustrating/sticky to work with so keep that extra flour handy.|
Step Five: Arrange Dumplings in Baking Dish
|Dumplings soaked in butter and lemon soda.|
Step Six: Bake
|The finished product.|
Step Seven: Enjoy! (...preferably with ice cream)
|A la mode...|
Yum! I was excited to find the Blue Bunny all natural frozen yogurt options available. The ingredients list was free of preservatives and food dyes so common to most frozen desserts. I called two dumplings a serving, and as prepared, it made nine servings. Servings are only dependent on how many dumplings you can fit in your baking dish.

373 cal/ 60 g carbs/ 13 g fat/ 8 g protein per 2 dumplings and 0.5 cup frozen yogurt
- This freezes nicely. Simply re-heat in the microwave and add a scoop of frozen yogurt.
- I can't say that this has taken the place of apple pie in my book, but it is a fun treat with fresh fruit.
