Tastiest Dessert Ever

I can't take credit for this one. My sister-in-law invited us over for dessert the other night and she served us these most wonderful Apple Dumplings that I have been craving all week. I have bought the ingredients to make 3 batches. Just one suggestion , I would double the apple in the "dumpling."
