Oh, Thanksgiving. Sweet, wonderful, fantastic Thanksgiving. A time for family, relaxing, and eating so much your belly hurts! The food is one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving. It's that combination of turkey and special sides that you only get once a year. There are those classic dishes that you just can't replace, but there are also some spins on those classics that I think we could all make a little room for.
I'm talking about apple dumplings. Okay, so dumplings have been around for a very long time. However, I never grew up with this dish at our Thanksgiving gatherings! Last year, as I was scrolling through the endless amounts of recipes on Pinterest, trying to figure out what I wanted to make for our annual "friendsgiving" I came across this apple dumpling recipe on www.OMGchocolatedesserts.com. This recipe was a game changer. It is so simple but so, so, SO delicious. I think I made it three times within a span of a few weeks. I am so excited to start making the dumplings again for this Holiday season, and to share this recipe with you all!
I would love to hear what your favorite Thanksgiving dishes are, and if you have any "spins" on the classics! Leave me a comment below to let me know!
