Apple Smoked Apple Dumplin's

Fall.... it's apple time. :)








I peeled and cored a couple of apples, then sliced into 4 thick pieces...

Placed the bottom slice onto a round of pie dough, sprinkled with a brown sugar/cinnamon mixture....then repeated with the remaining apple slices.




I topped the apple off with a bit of butter....


Then wrapped the cinnamon/brown sugar apple with the pie dough....




I gave the dumplin's a quick brush with an egg wash.......then sprinkled them with more of the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture.








Into my drum smoker at 300 degrees with a few apple chips for smoke added for flavor....



Smoked for about 1 hour....



The apple smoked apple dumplin' ready to be dressed up!



I drizzled the dumplin' with warm caramel sauce.....



sprinkled on a few pecans.....




topped with fresh whipped cream and a bit more caramel sauce and pecans....




The apple dumplin' sliced open......




It was soooooo tasty. lol I had a hard time getting a good spoon shot, they seemed to keep disappearing. I loved the mild apple smoke flavor too... I'll be making these again soon. :)

Chris said...

So how was the texture of the apple after 1 hour? Is it still semi tender or is it more like apple pie filling?

Throw about 12 of those in front of me, and I'll show you a dissapearing act that Houdini himself would have trouble performing Jeanie. Sure does look good.

Chris, it was tender, not like apple pie filling. I used a knife to check for tenderness after an hour. I was mainly concerned about the crust getting too dark or not being done... but it turned out perfect!
I'd like to do these again soon. :)

LOL! Mark! I really enjoyed the dumplin' and tried to eat it all but I had to save half of it for the next day. lol
Not sure if I could go through 12 of them in one sitting.

I'd make 12 of them for you though...just so I could see if you could eat all of them. lol

Thanks Mark. :)

Thank you Ray!
They had that carameled apple/apple pie flavor with a hint of apple smoke. I'm getting ready to smoke another batch of them on my drum this weekend.
They were soooo tasty. :)
