We are all familiar with chicken and dumplings right?  That comforting hot dish that warms our soul from the inside out.  Dumplings can be cooked in a variety of ways , like soups and stews, cooked in water or broth. Since I have a sweet tooth, I thought it would be a great idea to make a sweet version of dumplings!  Since dumplings are best eaten hot in some type of broth, I wanted to pair it with apples, which is also delicious hot (like apple pie). Feel free to make this “A La Mode!”

FUN  FACT: Dumplings originated as a dough that was either steamed or boiled as an inexpensive way to feed your family, popular during “The Depression.” Dumplings can also be in a form of being filled, fried or baked.
