- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 1/2 cup ice water
- 4 large apples, peeled and cored
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish and set it aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate it until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Gradually add the ice water and mix until the dough comes together. Divide the dough into four equal portions and shape each into a disk. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- While the dough chills, prepare the caramel sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter. Stir in the brown sugar and heavy cream, and cook until the mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
- Roll out each dough disk into a circle and place a peeled and cored apple in the center of each one. Fill the apple cores with caramel sauce and fold the dough around the apple, sealing it completely. Place the dumplings in the greased baking dish.
- Pour the remaining caramel sauce over the dumplings. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the dumplings are golden brown and the apples are tender.
- Serve your Heavenly Caramel Apple Dumplings warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra indulgent treat.
