"Celebrate Fall" Apple Dumplin's

It's Too Yummy Tuesday!

On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!

Every September makes me think of apples, since it's the official start of apple season in picturesque Oak Glen, CA. Our local apple growers are busy making mile-high pies and letting visitors pick fruit and press cider. So I wanted to share an apple recipe with you that's both super easy and good.  The house will smell lovely and so fall-ish while this is simmering on your stove!

Celebrate Fall Apple Dumplin's

2 to 2 1/2 lb. apples. (tart pie-style apples like Granny Smith work best for this), peeled/cored and thinly sliced
3/4 c. plus 1 Tbsp sugar, divided
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 c. water
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 c. Bisquick or other brand biscuit mix
1/3 c. milk
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Combine apples, 3/4 cup sugar, ginger, water, and lemon juice in a large, deep skillet (or bowl first while mixing), stirring well to combine. Heat mixture to boiling. While heating, combine Bisquick and milk in a small bowl just until moistened (don't overbeat). Drop this dumpling mixture by spoon onto the apples into roughly 6-8 "dollops". Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

Mix remaining 1 Tbsp sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Cover and simmer until apples are fork tender and dumplings cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes.

Serve this by itself as a dessert, as a side with a salty pork dish, or over vanilla ice cream--yum!

Serves 4
