Gluten-free vegan apple pie dumplings recipe with photos


Apple pies are delicious, sure, but they can be quite time-consuming to make. When you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen or with a group or people, but still crave the warm, inviting taste of a homemade apple pie, TikTok creator @chefsummerstorm came up with the best solution: apple pie dumplings.

Instead of having to bake and fill an entire pie crust, these accidentally gluten-free treats are wrapped in rice paper and fried on the stovetop. No need to preheat the oven or knead dough; The only thing you need to lift heavy in this recipe is to roll up the apple pie filling in a sheet of rice paper. Once fried, they taste great with a vegan cream cheese dip, according to @chefsummerstorm. This recipe is a must for anyone who loves apple pie.
