Whatever happened to apple dumplings?!? Seems like canned pumpkin products, donuts, and apple crumbles pushed them off our fall cooking agendas and I would like to personally see to it that this injustice is made right because these things are amazingly delicious, especially in a mini form. Plus they are so easy to make compared to other fall desserts (yes I’m looking at you, donuts).
Crab apples are in season right now so you’re all going to need to stop what you’re doing and head over to the store to buy some. They are as cute as can be and when wrapped up with deliciousness they make the perfect fall treat.
Oh, and a little homemade salted caramel sauce drizzle doesn’t hurt either (my recipe here). Perfect for a last minute Halloween treat or for your fall entertaining plans (Thanksgiving appetizer??)
