This apple is the bomb! It has this spicy yet sweet taste I have never tasted before on apple. The Envy apple is perfect for baking into a dessert, like this skillet apple dumpling recipe.
About Envy Apples
You can read about the envy apple here, but a quick synopsis from the Envy website:
It’s an apple grown for our busy, modern lives. A pure and pristine apple that’s a genuine work of orchard-growing genius. And one you can enjoy just about anywhere. With its extraordinary crunch and texture, refreshingly sweet palette and beautiful colours – it’s nature’s passport to a magical moment of indulgent time. Brought to you from the world’s most caring growers.
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.
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!
