Apple Pie Dumplings

Yesterday we went to Berry Patch Farms and brought home some yummy apples!  We decided to make apple dumplings, and they turned out perfect. 

For the filling:
1 apple (peeled, cored, and diced)
2 Tbsp Agave Nectar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp Vanilla
 Combine in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate while you make your dough.

For the dough there are many options, the first time I made a biscuit dough and wrapped them up.  The second batch I made whole wheat buttermilk biscuit dough and made them into empanadas.  You can also use Pillsbury dough if you don't think you will have time to make any.  

Put the filling into the dough and wrap it up.  Take a pastry brush and top your dumplings with the liquid left in the bowl.  Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

These are so easy to bake, and best of all your house will smell yummy :)
