Brickle’s Deleware Apple Dumplins

When we visited Delaware, we were surprised at the varied cuisine with influences from early English settlers, the cooking styles of the Chesapeake Bay region and recent immigrant groups that have settled in the area. Fresh peaches and apples are common and very popular in Delaware with many festivals such as the Apple Scrapple Festival! To pay tribute, here is our recipe for Brickle’s Baked Apple Dumplins.

Brickle’s Baked Apple Dumplins
Yield: 18 servings
1/2 cup local honey
3 tablespoons dry panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, beaten
2-1/4 cups chopped peeled tart apples (make sure and remove all seeds which are toxic to dogs)
1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1/3 cup local honey
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees
In a small bowl, combine the honey, bread crumbs, and cinnamon.. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into two 12-in. squares. Cut each sheet into nine 4-in. squares.
3. Brush squares with egg. Place 1 teaspoon honey mixture in the center of a square; top with 2 tablespoons chopped apple and 1 teaspoon honey mixture. Gently bring up corners of pastry to center; pinch edges to seal. Repeat with remaining pastry, crumb mixture and apples. Place on greased baking sheets.
4. In a small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients. Brush remaining egg over dumplings; press streusel over tops.
Bake at 375° for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Place pans on wire racks
Let cool completely before serving to your dog. Can be stored in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to three days.
