WOW, I made these just to use up some frozen pie crust that I wanted to get rid of, and some granny smiths that aren't getting eaten fast enough. I am not a fan of apple desserts but I thought I give these a try; maybe someone in my family would eat them. Looking at the picture, the sauce made me a bit queasy. Looks pretty syrupy sweet, but the reviews intrigued me. I had to give it a go. I made them tonight and tried 1/2 of one just to see.....OH MY !! These are EXCELLENT! The flavor of the syrup isn't sickeningly sweet like I was afraid of, it's got a nice vanilla taste, not too heavy. My husband was raving about the one he ate too! They are really rather easy to make...except for peeling and coring the apples...torture for me; but otherwise, basic and easy and SOOO worth it. My dad loves apple dumplings and I can't wait to make some for him soon. For those of you who may have to wrestle with the pie crust (kept breaking, etc.) I finally just wet my hands and squeezed around the apple and plastered that crust on the best I could. They didn't look beautiful, but they were pretty well encased. This was well worth the experiment after all.
