Instructions
  1. Peel the apples, then core them but do not go all the through the bottom of the apple when doing so.
  2. Mix the soft butter, sugars, and cinnamon together to form a soft paste. Place this mixture into the cored cavity of each apple. Filling about 3/4 full.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Roll out the pie crust and cut about 7″ square for each apple. Re-roll scraps to get all 4 squares.
  5. Place each square of pie crust on top of the apple then form the dough around the apple to fit snug. Trim off excess on the bottom of the apple if needed so the apple will stand upright without falling while baking.
  6. Place the apples on a parchment lined backing sheet.
  7. Whisk together the egg and water to make the egg wash. Brush the egg wash on each apple. If adding decorative leaves, apple them around the core and egg wash them.
  8. Bake about 40 minutes till lightly golden and the apples are done. They will be soft and gooey. Cool 10 minutes then serve with warmed apple cider and vanilla ice cream.
Recipe Notes

If you are using refrigerator pie crust, 1 package is enough to make 4 apple dumplings.  After cutting out the square on each pie crust, re-roll the scraps and cut the other two squares.
