These are fun little treats and delicious too. I know I say that about almost everything on this site, but hey, I love food. I love desert food probably the best, aside from steak, and bacon, and pork, and garlic, oh and chocolate. Guess I could go on forever couldn’t I? Be careful to use apples that don’t have too too much juice, they tend to get a little messy when you bake them. What’s your favorite fruit based dessert?

Apple Pie Dumplings

Serves: 4       Total Time: 60


  • 4 Ambrosia apples, or your favrorite baking apple
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. pecans
  • 2 tbsp. raisins, (Sultanas are best, I think you know why.)
  • 2 pre-made pie crusts - enough for a top and bottom of a real pie
  • whipped cream
  • vanilla ice cream


Step 1
Preheat your grill to 350° and prepare for indirect grilling.
Step 2
Core and peel the apples.
Step 3
In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon and brown sugar. Roll the apples in the brown sugar mixture until they are fully coated. Set the apples aside and add the raisins and pecans to the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Step 4
Roll out the dough and slice the two pieces in half so that you have four slices of pie crust.
Step 5
Place an apple in the middle of each slice of pie crust. Stuff the center of each apple, where you removed the core, with the raisin and nut mixture, then plug the top and bottom of the apple with a small chunk of pie crust before wrapping it around the apple until each apple is completely covered.
Step 6
Bake the apples directly on the grids or on a baking sheets over indirect heat for about 45 minutes, until the apple is soft.
Step 7
Serve hot directly from the grill with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream.
Apple Pie Dumplings On The Grill. They're not quite a dumpling, they're really not pie. I honestly don't know what they are, other than delicious. Basically I wrapped a whole apple in pie crust and baked it until it was soft and delicious. Then I served it with whipped cream and oh... oh I need another one right now... 'scuse me.
