Iron Skillet Apples n’ Dumplings

Now here’s an easy recipe that has few ingredients, easy to make and very yummy! I posted this recipe on my personal Facebook blog and forgot to get back to posting it!  I do that a lot, I’ll make something and don’t have the time to type up the recipe and then forget to get back to it.  What’s even worse is taking photos and putting them in a folder…and then forget what recipe I used! lol  I’ll have to go back searching for recipes I’ve not even typed up yet.  Anyway, I was asked if I had the recipe posted after 2 months!  I’m surprised I had not posted it yet.   Time does get away with you at times. 

This recipe was posted to put the dumplings in a cookie sheet, but I do love anything in my iron skillet…so, I decided to go for it!  I’ll show some step by step photo so you can see what I did.  I hope you enjoy!


Happy Apple Dumpling Baking!






I can of Jumbo Biscuits (regular)

1 can of apple pie filling (or your canned or jar apples)

Softened butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon cinnamon…more if you love cinnamon




Remove biscuits from can and place on a floured surface.

Roll each biscuit out flat and add a scoop of pie filling in the middle. **

Fold stuffed biscuit over in half and pinch edges together.

Roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture to coat all sides.

Place each turnover into a large greased iron skillet pinched side down.

Brush tops lightly with softened butter.

If you have any leftover apples, sprinkle them around and between dumplings.

After rolling in cinnamon sugar, sprinkle any that is left over the dumplings.

Bake at 350F until golden brown and sizzling.  Approx 15 to 25 minutes.  This depends on your preference on if you want then a bit on the crusty side, or the gooey side.  As long as they are golden brown and sizzling in the skillet, they should be done.

Cool until they are warm, but not cold. 

Drizzle white confectioner sugar across the top of dumplings. 

** For the drizzle icing, mix about 1/2 cup confectioner sugar together with 1-3 Tablespoons water.  All you want is for the icing to be thin enough to drizzle over the dumplings.  If your icing is too thin, add more confectioner sugar.  If it’s too thick, just add more water.

  1. Hi, this sounds so good! it seems to be something like Dampfnudeln, but with apples in it.
    Is this a yeast dough? we can not buy these biscuits in Switzerland.


    • Heidi, it’s made with regular jumbo biscuits, not yeast dough…although you could make them with yeast dough. Maybe use the same recipe for say…cinnamon rolls.
