Sweetcie Pie's Apple Dumpling

This is a Sweetcie Pie original!


The sweetness is not restrained in the Apple Dumpling, as it is in other Sweetcie Pie desserts, but it's balanced with dark caramel, brown butter, and a bit of lemon. It's rich, complex, and so delicious. The cinnamon and gooeyness is strong here.


Apple slices are wrapped in a tender and flaky butter crust, made from scratch and rolled out by hand.  It is all baked until the apples are just al dente, while sitting in a brown butter, caramelized sugar syrup that you can drizzle over ice cream.


One single order makes 8 very large servings, or 16 smaller servings. The Apple Dumpling is also available in a double size for twice the goodness.  The single and double size orders are both party size desserts, and come in a foil pan.

  • Keeping and storage

    Keep the pie in a cool place on the counter if eating within a day or two. Refrigerate if keeping longer. The crust will hold up best if the pie is wrapped in plastic and refrigerated, but be sure to warm to room temp before eating.

  • Refreshing your pie

    It's best to start with a room temperature pie. If it has been in the fridge, then take it out a few hours before eating. You just want to warm the pie, not re-cook it. Turn on the oven to 200 deg. Place the pie on a sheet pan in the middle of the oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes, then rotate the pan. Bake another 5-10 minutes or until warmed through. To check the temperature of the middle, you can place a skewer or toothpick into the center and hold it there for several seconds. Remove and feel the skewer with your finger. If the skewer is warm to your liking, then your pie is ready.
