Apple Dumplings

This is another recipe I got from Sandra at Full Bellies, Happy Kids.  It's Trisha Yearwood's recipe for Apple Dumplings.  They are so delicious but even better, they are quick and easy.

Apple Dumplings

2 apples (I used honey crisp although the recipe calls for granny smith)
1 lemon
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
8 canned buttermilk biscuits
4 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Peel, core and slice the apples into 8 pieces each.  Squeeze the lemon into a bowl of water and add the apples.  This will keep them from turning brown.

In a saucepan over medium heat, mix 1 cup of water with 3/4 cup of sugar, the butter and the vanilla. Bring the mixture to a boil.

Separate each biscuit into 2 layers.  Wrap each apple slice in a biscuit layer, stretching the biscuit slightly to seal on the bottom.  Place sealed side down in a 9x13 baking dish.

Pour the sugar mixture over the apple slices and mix the remaining sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the wrapped apples.  Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
