Good Lord. This dish is ah-mazing. It reminds me of going to little diners as a kid and ordering the apple pie. For some reason nothing tasted better than diner apple pie. These skillet apple dumplings are now king of the castle, bumping that diner apple pie right off its pedestal.
Skillet Apple Dumplings: Tasty Meets Real Food
I’m constantly torn between the world of tasty food, and real food. I want to offer my kids something they’ll eat more than one bite of and come out thinking that was actual dessert instead of Mom’s healthy recipe gone bad.
This recipe is definitely going into our “kid approved” dessert category. I used coconut sugar to sweeten the apples slightly and then added a bit to the dumpling dough. They resemble little bites of pie crust. Yum!
Serving dessert in a skillet makes life that much more exciting. I loved watching my family’s faces as I presented this skillet to them all fancy-like at the dining table.
