DIY: Apple Dumplings

Jordan Barker, Staff Writer

Nothing says fall like a warm apple dessert that you can share with all of your friends.

The Apple Barn is still open with many opportunities of fun. They are no longer picking apples, but there still are apples available for sale. Just because you can’t go apple picking, doesn’t mean you can’t go with some friends and enjoy a nice warm or cold cup of apple cider for only one dollar. They also have apple cider doughnuts available (half dozen for $4.00 or a dozen for $7.50) and their shop inside consists of many amazing treats and snacks as it gets colder out. They also have a winery attache for all you 21- year-olds. The employees are very friendly and ready to help you if you need it.

For this recipe you will need Granny Smith apples.
