In this video Cee Dub shows you step by step how to make a delicious Dutch oven dessert based on an Old World recipe was given to Cee Dub by one of his river running buddies. Cee Dub first tasted this while floating the Middle Fork of Salmon River which flows through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area in Central Idaho. Cee Dub takes his friends family heirloom recipe originally made in a home oven and adapts it for use in his Dutch ovens. One can easily vary the flavor of this recipe by changing varieties of apples and spices. i.e. use ground Allspice, mace, or cloves instead of the cinnamon.

Apple dumplings

In the video Cee Dub uses a store bought pastry dough but you can easily do this with your favorite home made pie crust. For a home made crust for this and many other dishes Cee Dub uses this simple yet fool proof pastry recipe given to him by a Basque friend who’s grandmother ran a boarding house for Basque sheepherders. So for that real home made flavor use this recipe which if you’ve cooked out of his cookbooks you’ll recognize as Cee Dub’s “go to” pastry for his Sunday Morning Quiche, Basque Blackberry Cobbler and other great recipes!

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Sticks of Butter
6 oz of Cream Cheese
Pinch of Salt

Add the salt to the flour and stir. Allow butter and cream cheese to come to room temperature and then cut into flour. Work dough into a ball and chill for 1-2 hours. After chilling, roll out dough on a floured cutting board to approx. 1/8″ thick. Prepare apples, cut the dough to wrap each apple and follow Cee Dub’s directions in the video to bake this one of a kind apple dumpling recipe.
