2/3 cup sour cream

6 medium tart cooking apples, cored, peeled

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup chopped pecans

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour and salt in bowl; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream with fork until mixture forms a ball.

  3. STEP 3

    Roll dough into 19x12-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Cut 1-inch strip off 19-inch end; reserve. Cut remaining dough into 6 (6-inch) squares. Place apple in center of each square.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine sugar, pecans and 2 tablespoons butter in bowl. Fill center of apple with 1 1/2 tablespoons mixture. Fold dough up around apple; seal seams well. Place onto prepared pan, seam-side down.

  5. STEP 5

    Brush dough with milk; prick dough with fork. Cut leaf designs out of reserved 1-inch strip of dough. Brush with milk; place onto wrapped apples. Bake 35-45 minutes or until apples are fork tender. Cover with aluminum foil if crust is browning too quickly.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine all sauce ingredients in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Serve sauce over warm dumplings.
