Robertatalloni means creativity. Whether in writing or in more typical art forms artistry (and a bit of fun) must be part of the work.

Some like them with a slice of cheese, others like them with coffee, no matter how you eat them, these apple dumplings are easy pies to make!

Cow Milk Free Easy Apple Dumplings


Apple season never ends at our house because we love them so much. It’s a good thing they are good for us even in desserts!

When they are in season and plentiful, it’s time to prepare them in various ways for year-round use and store the recipes in the freezer. Exploring new ways to enjoy them is part of the season's blessings.

Traditional apple sauces, pie fillings, breads, dried apple rings, and our favorite fresh apple cake are all good ways to make sure we will be delighting in apples throughout the year. Breakfast treats that freeze well are always a welcome top choice.

Of all the health benefits of apples, their flavors really are the best!

My latest is an easy apple dumpling that works up quickly. There are several versions online, including ones that use whole apples in the pastry but I have to be careful about cow's milk products.

I wanted to work on a simple method that contained ingredients we like and which would not upset our apple cart--um, digestion, that is. Note the cow milk free substitutions included below.

This recipe has become a breakfast of choice for us. Those we’ve shared it with have asked for it every time, which always makes me smile because it looks complicated. They don’t believe that these are easy to whip up.

I have to be honest when they want to know my light, fluffy pastry method because I’m no pastry chef. I wish I’d thought to take pictures of the initial expressions they made when I told them about the special pastry ingredient.

The main recipe is super easy with just 4 store bought ingredients. Below it are tips that bring it much closer to what we consider homemade. The photos can serve as a guide for assembling the dumplings. Hope you and yours enjoy this little treat as much as we and ours have!


Easiest Ever Apple Dumplings can be Cow’s Milk Free

  • 6 Small Flour Tortillas, no Cow's Milk Ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, or Replace with Coconut Oil
  • 1 1/2 Cups Apple Pie Filling, no Cow's Milk Ingredients
  • 6 Teaspoons Cinnamon Sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Spray an extra large 6 cup muffin tin with non-stick baking spray, or grease the pans with butter or coconut oil.
  3. Generously grease both sides of each flour tortilla covering the outside edges well. Stack them neatly together on a plate or cutting board.
  4. Place the open end of a yogurt cup (or something about that size) in the center of the tortilla stack.
  5. Use a sharp knife to gently cut about 5 angled slits fairly evenly around the yogurt cup (see photos).
  6. Without tearing the tortillas, fold the slits inside each other to make a cup shape, then fit each one into a muffin pan cup. Lightly press the bottom and lower sides to form fit them into the pan shape.
  7. Fill each tortilla with approximately 1/4 cup of apple pie filling.
  8. Gently press the tortilla edges around the top, folding and pressing the layers together using the butter or coconut oil as a bit of glue.
  9. Sprinkle 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar on top.
  10. Bake approximately 14 minutes, just until the dumplings are browned to your liking.
  11. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for about 7 minutes, then loosen sides of each dumpling to lift them out.
  12. Serve warm (don’t forget the topping or ice cream for a special dessert), or cool completely then wrap individually for storing in the freezer by wrapping in wax paper and aluminum foil, or by putting into small individual containers. We find that bringing them to room temperature, then heating slightly in the microwave on a medium setting works quite well for serving later.

Tips on Making a Closer-to-Homemade Easy Apple Dumpling Recipe

So, that’s the easiest ever version of apple dumplings. However, you might be in the mood for a closer-to-homemade version of these yummy little pies. Though the following can still use the small flour tortillas, other ingredients are changed up a bit and full of yummy health!

For instance, I like to make my own apple pie filling from our own apples or purchased organic ones because that allows me to use the spices we like best in our favorite amounts. All of these tips can be used, or the recipe above can be changed up with just one of them.


Modern large-sized silicone muffin tins can make extraction and clean up easier. They come in cheerful colors and are used by professional bakers.

Homemade tortilla shells are wonderful and very easy to make ahead and freeze. One highly rated (and healthy) recipe for them comes from Taste of Home, and Fine Cooking also has a fine one. Replacing a little vanilla with part of the recipe’s liquids is a grand idea for apple dumplings. Warning--if you make these you will never want store bought tortillas again.

Full-flavored coconut oil works well with this recipe, but if for some strange-to-me reason you don’t like coconut with apple, go for the unflavored. Try using the 6 tablespoons of coconut oil mixed with a teaspoon of cinnamon sugar when coating the tortillas for assembly.

The number of slits around the tortilla shells' edges can vary. The more you make the more pastryish the dumplings look, 7 being the most I would make for too many would tear the packet apart. Just try to space the the slits evenly and layer them into each other like flower petals as you place them in the muffin cups.

Make apple pie filling from fresh apples using your own mix of spices. We like finely chopped apples as opposed to chunky, and our favorite spices are cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger. I mixed chopped walnuts into the filling once and it was a home run. This Apple Pie FIlling recipe can get you started, and here is a slow cooker version.

I make my own cinnamon sugar mix using organic sugar, but you might prefer the flavor of brown sugar. In the mix I add some grated orange bits and a hint of ginger. You might have a special affinity for fresh ground nutmeg, though. Choose the spices you love!

      Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed seeing this recipe. Tortillas are quite versatile. I'm currently trying to decide if I want to make 200 of these yummies for a children's ministry I work with once a month. Not sure I can work out the logistics–might be too ambitious. Even though these are quite easy, that's a lot of little pies!

      Thinking through the way they are formed does give a beautiful presentation. I want to try using a tiny leaf cookie cutter to make toppings from an extra tortilla. I would cut the leaves, spread coconut oil on them (butter for some people), and coat them in cinnamon sugar to be baked on top of the dumplings. So appreciate your visit and comment!

      I could have sworn I commented on this recipe. It looks awesome and I some apples around as I write this. Love the twist with tortillas. Pinned.

      Yes, just in time for fall! :) It is delicious, and versatile. Spicing them to preference, mixing up the fruits, adding nuts…it's been fun to experiment with them. I'm thinking of adding goat cheese to the filling next time to add some breakfast protein for on-the-go day starters.

      Thanks much for stopping in and leaving your comment!

      This recipe looks delicious. I never head of the tortilla version, and look forward to making them. And just in time for fall. :-)

      We have family with milk allergies and this will be on our list for treats when they visit. Thanks for the suggestion. I never would have thought of the tortilla as a base. Voted up!

      This really is a simple recipe that can be dressed to the nines if a fancy dessert is called for, but breakfast is our favorite meal to have them in.

      Thanks much for your visit and comment. We do liked them spiced up, but cinnamon alone is lovely stuff. :)

      These apple dumplings sound delicious. My favorite spice for apple pie is cinnamon. I love the combination of flavors. The other spices that you mention sound like they would be lovely, too!

      Using the tortillas was an amazing discovery. The only way this recipe could be easier is if the apple dumplings were boxed in a store, brought home, then heated. Thanks for checking this post out and leaving your feedback!

      This looks so good and they are so cute and I bet you could decorate them up lots of ways...sprinkle with con sugar and maybe crushed nuts...these are going to be on my menu soon. Thank you!

      I never would have thought to use tortillas for a dumpling recipe! How cool. Thanks for the great seasonal recipe. It's always good to have another apple recipe on hand during the fall.
