Dessert: Apple Dumplings

(collected from Scouting Magazine)

  • 5 Granny Smith apples
  • 2 large cans (10 per pkg) of large-size buttermilk biscuits
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sticks butter
  • cinnamon or apple pie spice

Core apples and peel them (if desired). Slice each apple into 8 pieces for a total of 40 slices.

Divide each biscuit into 2 pieces. Wrap apple slices with dough. Grease a 12-inch Dutch oven and place dumplings in oven. Heat water, sugar, and butter together in separate pot (do not bring to boil). Pour mixture over dumplings. Sprinkle cinnamon or pie spice over dumplings.

Put Dutch oven over 8 to 10 charcoal briquettes, and place 10 to 14 briquettes on top of oven. Check after 20 minutes. Dumplings are done when apples are soft and dough is brown.

Serves 10 to 15 Scouts or 20 leaders.
