Apple Dumplings...

 Took a trip to the local farm and picked up apples...honeycrisp apples and decided to make apple dumplings for dessert.  I really have never had a written recipe that I use. 
I just always have "put them together."
This is for 4 apples.

 I peeled and cored the apples.  As I am horrible at making pie crusts,
I cheated and used the premade Pillsbury pie crusts. 
Cut the round pie crust into quarters, take two pieces
and put the two rounded edges together and set an apple on it.

 I took a "hunk" of butter and put it in the hole of the cored apple
and added a mixture of white sugar and cinnamon into the hole, over the butter. 
Probably about a teaspoon full.

Then pull the pie crust up around the apple
Put in a baking pan.

In a saucepan combine 3/4 cup of water, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 3 tablespoons of butter
and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar has dissolved
Pour this over the dumplings.

 Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.

This was our dessert tonight... still warm with vanilla ice cream.

Confessed to using premade pie crusts but I also can't make gravy...
My Mom just shakes her head.
