National Apple Dumpling Day


As the weather is starting to change, apples are ripening on trees, and people are starting to spend more time baking in their kitchens. This day brings both of those things together, and celebrates the apple dumpling. Apple dumplings are pastries made by coring and peeling apples, filling them with cinnamon, sugar, and butter, and placing them on dough that folds over them. They are then baked until they are tender. Apple dumplings are native to the area around Pennsylvania, and they can be eaten for breakfast, but are mainly a dessert food. They are many times eaten with ice cream or with milk.

National Apple Dumpling Day is observed next on Tuesday, September 17th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on September 17th.

How to Observe

The day should be spent making and eating apple dumplings. Chances are you might be able to pick some fresh apples, since we're in the middle of the apple harvest season. Why not enjoy the fruits of your labor while relaxing and watching the Apple Dumpling Gang?
