How do I make it ?
Preheat oven to 400°F. Drizzle lemon juice over prepared apples. Remove pastry shells from foil plates. Slightly roll out pastry. Cut round corners to create square shape. Repeat with second pastry.
Place apple in centre of each square. Spoon sugar into apple centres; sprinkle with cinnamon. Moisten 4 corners with water. Lift up and join corners together to enclose each apple. Pinch edges to seal. Brush pastry with egg. Place in lightly greased baking pan.
Bake 30 min. or until pastry is crisp and lightly brown. Lay cheese strips across apple tops. Spoon 1 Tbsp. whipped topping on each dumpling. Cut dumpling in half. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Apples aren't just for eating. To prevent brown sugar from hardening, place apple slice in brown sugar bag; seal. The next day it should be soft and slightly moist.
Jazz It Up
Place 1 tsp. rum on top of each apple before wrapping with pastry.
Make it Easy
Use a funnel to fill apple centres with brown sugar.
