Caramel Apple Dumpling
A traditional apple dumpling with caramel added.
1 Concord Foods Microwave Caramel Kit, divided and softened
2/3 cup chopped pecans
4 apples (4 to 6 oz each)
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon of water
- Preheat oven to 375ºF.
- Mix chopped pecans with 1/4 cup of the microwave caramel which has been softened. Peel and completely core the apples. Hollow center should be about 1 inch wide. Stuff center with nutty caramel mixture.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry sheet into a 12 inch square. Cut into four 6 inch squares and lightly brush squares with beaten egg. Place a stuffed apple in the middle of each square. Bring opposite corners of the pastry up and over the apple, pinching the tips together. Repeat with remaining corners. Pinch 2 sets of tips together. Pinch side seams together and fold over about 1/8 inch and pinch again.
- Bake at 375ºF for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown. Top with remaining caramel, melted.
