Yes, of course you can use phyllo dough for apple dumplings....and here is the proof.
Normally you need to use crescent rolls or puff pastry dough, but I just HAD to try this variation too. Does it hurt? :P
So I used 1 bag or half of the phyllo package and cut it in 4 and then in 4 again so I would get 8 triangles.
I cut a Granny Smith apple (which I peeled and cored) into 8 wedges and wrapped/rolled the wedges into the dough triangles.
I also added some extra pieces of apple just because I like extra apples in there.
So you butter your 9 inch pan, you lay the dumplings nicely and you pour a mixture of 1/2 cup sugar with almost 1 stick of butter and 1 TBSP cinnamon over the dumplings.
On the edges right after you will need to pour a full can of mountain dew. Yes, a whole can.
Bake for 55 minutes at 350 F.
