This is an oldie and a goodie, and oh so easy. It's really more of a Fall or Winter dessert, but while I was putting it in my files, I thought I'd share it here, also.
Woolworth’s Apple Dumpling with Puff Pastry and Vanilla Custard Sauce
16 puff pastry squares
16 apples, peeled and cored
8 oz sugar
1/8 oz cinnamon
Preheat oven to 380-400 deg F
Cut 10-inch by 15-inch puff pastry's into 16 equal squares. Each square will measure 5-inches by 5-inches. Drain apples. Place one apple in the center of each pastry square. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Place 1/2 ounce mixture into the cored cut-out center of each apple.
Brush edges of pastry with water. Cover apples with puff squares by lifting up each corner and place one corner on top of the other. Pinch dough with fingers to seal. Place apple dumplings on lightly greased sheet pans with folded corners up. Wash top and sides with egg wash.
Bake at 380 - 400 deg F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Vanilla Custard Sauce
4-oz box instant vanilla pudding mix
8 oz cold milk
3 c milk
2 oz raisins*
1/2 t vanilla.
*My note: Craisins or dried cherries are good, too
Dissolve pudding mix in cold milk. Heat remaining 3 c of milk to 185 deg F. Add pudding mix. Cook and stir until thick, about 8 minutes. Add raisins and vanilla.
Remove from heat. Place in stainless steel pot. Serve warm.
Yields 1 quart 4-oz sauce: (24) 1-oz ladles, or (18) 1 1/2-oz ladles.
Also good over bread pudding.
