Celebrated every year on September 17, it is National Apple Dumpling Day where people across the United States turn on their ovens in preparation for a big batch of apple dumplings.

These delicious filled pastries are typically made by putting cored and peeled apples on a piece of dough, sprinkling them with cinnamon and sugar,  then folding the dough over the apples to form a dumpling.  The dumplings are then oven baked until tender.

Apple dumplings are believed to be native to northeastern United States, around Pennsylvania.  Being very common among the  Amish, with their delicious recipe, it is often eaten as a breakfast item however, they are also regularly eaten as a dessert and sometimes served with ice cream.
