'Joy the Baker' recently published a recipe for flaky apple dumplings. Although dumplings are traditionally thought of as a savory dish, they can also be made using sweet ingredients as well. This recipe combines seasonal ingredients with salted caramel to produce a delicious fall dessert.

Although wonton wrappers are usually used to make savory dumplings, this recipe calls for puff pastry. The pastry gives the dish a flaky texture that complements the sweet filling inside. The filling is made from a combination of Granny Smith apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Although the dumplings are delicious on their own, it is the salted maple caramel sauce that elevates this recipe. The end result is a decadent dessert that is bursting with familiar fall flavors.

The flaky apple dumplings are perfect for those who are looking for an alternative to pumpkin-based recipes.
