Lauren and I went to Marker-Miller Orchards yesterday for apples. The weather was gorgeous and we had nothing else to do the rest of the day. Honeycrisps are picked out for the season, so we picked Nittany (go Big Blue) and Crispin. Then we went back to my house to make apple dumplings the traditional way. We used the "Never Fail Pie Crust" recipe that the marching band used to make when we did our huge pie & dumpling fund raiser (this one is similar), and the dumpling recipe was pretty standard. I love how my apple peeler also spiral slices the fruit because it makes the dumplings easier to eat. Steve came home from watching football with the guys just in time to help out with quality assurance.
