Baked Apple Dumplings Recipe

Fall is season not only for pumpkins but apples too. And I love baked apples.

Sticking apple into an oven is probably an easiest way to cook them. Baking apples in a dough as dumplings is a bit more sophisticated, but not whole a lot more complicated.

You can play a bit with taste: add cinnamon, or stuff apple with some raisins or nuts to your taste.

Baked apple dumplings taste the best when served warm.

Ingredients:

  1. Prepare ingredients: amount of kefir or sour cream will depend on its thickness:
