The dumplings with apple and pine nuts are simple and really delicious desserts. They can be prepared really in no time; all you need is a roll of ready-made puff pastry and you're done. Golden and fragrant, they hide inside a filling made with apples and pine nuts, and they are also enriched with a cinnamon scent, which recalls the classic South Tyrolean dessert, the apple strudel. These small dumplings are perfect to be enjoyed at breakfast or as a snack along with a cup of tea, or to be served at the end of a meal or an informal dinner with friends, or to accompany a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. So let’s find out how to prepare the dumplings with apple and pine nuts by following our recipe step by step.

Using a knife, make two small incisions on each dumpling that will allow the steam to escape during baking and favor the development of the puff pastry (8). Bake the dumplings in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for about 20 minutes.

How to store apple dumplings

The dumplings with apple and pine nuts can be preserved under a glass bell jar or in a special airtight container for 2-3 days at room temperature. Heat them for a few minutes in the oven before eating; they will return fragrant and as if they were freshly baked.
