Deconstructed Recipe

I actually like deconstructed recipes. What is a deconstructed recipe? It when you take a recipe that is usually together and make it not together. This apple dumpling is an example of a deconstructed recipe.




Apple Dumplings

Normally apple dumplings are apples, seasoned, and wrapped up in a dough and baked. So I decided to take a few steps out of apple dumplings and make it an easy apple dumpling recipe.




Skillet Apple Dumpling Recipe

I will admit, what inspired this skillet apple dumpling recipe was something I saw on a frozen bread dough wrapper. They had this apple skillet recipe. I decided to mix up that recipe and use crumbled pie dough instead of bread dough to create a skillet apple dumpling.




Easy Apple Dessert

What I think is the appeal of this apple recipe is that it is an easy apple dessert. It is basically dumped in a skillet cook and serve. I personally like this apple skillet recipe with a scoop of ice cream, now that is dessert recipe I love!

    What a great idea especially since I make skillets all year round outside on my grill. I love the idea of doing a fall dumpling deconstructed style in my cast iron pan. Looks like dessert in the near future for us!!

    I love rustic desserts and this skillet apple dessert comes at a perfect time. The stores are full of apples all waiting to find a yummy way to fix. I like this deconstructed recipe. Just add a bit of ice cream or whipped cream and it’s a wonderful fall dessert.

    If my skillet could run, I think it would run away from me. I use it for everything. However, I have not tried desserts in it. Interested in trying your recipe. Looks great!
