This Apple Dumpling Pastry is made with puff pastry strips wrapped around a 3 minute microwaved whole  apple that has been peeled, cored and filled with brown sugar, cinnamon, currents and chopped pecans.  The pastry is brushed with an egg wash and baked in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35 minutes.  The pastry turns into a beautifully golden fall apple shaped pastry.  No sauce here but a scoop of cinnamon vanilla ice cream and drizzle of caramel sauce would be a great accompaniment.
