This is great! I made my own crust (1 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup salted butter, 3 tbsp cold water, all in food processor) and made the recipe "almost" :) to a T, what I made different, is that the brown sugar/spices mixture that I was supposed to add to the apples... I add to little to each apple, so I end up with about 1/4 cup left, so for the sirup I put 1 3/4 cup of white sugar and the 1/4 cup of the brown sugar/spices, did not cut on the water, wich was perfect, and add 2 tablespoons of butter and like 1 1/2 cup of pecans, wich turn out in deliciously caramelized pecans. The brown sugar and spices gives the sauce a rich deep flavor and a yummy smell! I did give a "bath" to the dumplings with the syrup after 20 minutes in the oven, and then after other 20 minutes more, gives a nice candied crust. Used Golden Delisious apples, wich I liked because they gave a slightly tang. Read other reviews about this beeing a very filling dessert, wich is true, but for one of my guest did not applied, asked secons and a couple of dumplings to go! This is what I called a succes! Served with vanilla ice cream (a most) and a generous amont of sauce poured over. A last thing, plan to bake this so that you serve right out of the oven, hot and bubbling.
