A staple of the American dessert menu, the apple dumpling has made more than its fair share of full bellies, big smiles, and sticky fingers to give its own national day.

Apple dumplings are believed to be a northeastern American dessert that originates from somewhere around Pennsylvania. The traditional way of making apple dumplings is to peel and core apples, place them onto a pastry, add a few grains of spices and sugar, then wrap in the pastry, and bake until the dessert is syrupy and golden brown. Usually a breakfast item for Amish, other people enjoy their apple dumplings as a dessert with vanilla ice cream.
