Want a little more cocooning cooking for comfort?

Apple Pidumpling

4-5 lg. cooking apples (Gala, Honeycrisp, etc.) Peel and slice…need enough apples to generously fill a round cake pan or 8″ square pan.

On the stove in a saucepan mix 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 cup water, 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and allspice or pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Cook and stir til sugar is melted.

Remove from heat and add 2 Tb cornstarch dissolved in cold water
The syrup should be thick with addition of corn starch..

Pour syrup over apple slices and toss to coat.

In the same bowl mix 1 cup Bisquik (I use gluten free Bisquik), 1/4 c sugar, 1/2 cup milk or more to make the batter pourable & a splash of vanilla.

Slowly pour this batter over apples to cover.

Melt 2 Tb butter and drizzle over top.  Lightly sprinkle top with coarse sugar (optional).

Bake at 375 for 50 min-1 hr til golden brown.
