Apple Crescent Dumplings transforming state fair food into a home-made treat

This weekend I had a chance to go to my first ever state fair. I had heard tales of thrilling rides, adorable farm animals and games as far as your eye can see. But what intrigued me most were the stories of the most delicious sounding "fair foods".


There was fried cookie dough, spicy corn on the cob, maple & chocolate bacon strips, candied apples, prize winning pies and of course funnel cake. However, my eyes were locked on one thing: Apple Dumplings.

Granny Smith & Gala Apples

These simple yet drool-worthy treats were perfect to satisfy my sweet tooth while roaming around the huge fairgrounds. Oven baked apples cored and en-robed in fresh dough, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar then fried & topped with a scoop of vanilla bean icecream. I just knew I had to take the idea home and recreate them for my family. And just like that, the Apple Crescent Dumpling became a favorite.

In Gerhard's Living Kitchen, with the help of my Viking 30" Electric Premiere Oven, I was able to get my craving out of my head and on to my plate in no time at all! All I needed was canned dinner rolls, apples with a bit of cider, butter & of course, cinnamon sugar.
