This week's recipe was courtesy of my wonderful mother-in-law. For some strange, unknown, unfathomable reason my husband does not like cake. And although he likes some chocolate things, his favorite desserts are not chocolate. His mom found this recipe for Apple Dumplings a few years back and David loved them. So she gifted me the recipe at my shower.
This is one of the recipes that I have made before because I made it a few times in our first year of marriage (before I started this year of cooking through all the recipes). It is pretty easy to put together and very delicious.
I actually made this on Sunday, this is just the first chance I've had to blog about it. We spent the afternoon working on our pool--we've had it covered since November, so we took off the cover and started the process of cleaning and shocking the pool. I figured this dessert would be a nice treat after all of David's hard work. We had BBQ brisket for dinner and apple dumplings for dessert--it was a great Sunday dinner.
