Hello friends, welcome to Dumplings Recipe. Today we are going to make Rose Apple Dumplings.

Flaky biscuit dough is wrapped around crisp apples and topped with a rich butter sauce to create delicious cinnamon-spiced apple dumplings.

I learned this recipe from her grandmother when canned biscuit dough was first invented. And our family has never stopped making it!

Ingredients for making Rose Apple Dumplings

  • Nonstick baking spray


  • ¾ stick unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple – peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated flaky biscuit dough

Cream Sauce

  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions for making Rose Apple Dumplings

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a square baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Pour melted butter into a bowl; add sugar, flour, and cinnamon for dumplings and whisk until fully combined with the butter. Toss apples in mixture to coat; add 2 tablespoons warm water and mix to combine.
  3. Gently stretch out the biscuits one at a time until they’re large enough to fit 1 tablespoon apple mixture. Be careful not to stretch them too thin, you don’t want the dough to break.
  4. Add 1 heaping tablespoon apple mixture to the center of each stretched-out biscuit. Gently tuck the dough around the mixture to seal each dumpling into a ball shape.
  5. Line up the dumplings with the seal facing down. Use a sharp knife to slice a tiny slit into the top of each dumpling to allow them to vent while cooking.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until nearly golden brown, 15 to 25 minutes.
  7. While dumplings are baking, melt butter for sauce in a medium saucepan over medium-low. Slowly sprinkle flour into the butter, whisking the entire time.
  8. Add water and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Whisk in sugar and vanilla extract.
  9. Remove dumplings from the oven and pour sauce on top. Continue to bake until the edges of the corner dumplings start to brown and pull away from the sides of the pan, 5 to 6 minutes more.

Chefs Tips

  • My grandma likes to leave the apple peels on sometimes for extra texture and extra fiber.
