Power Quick Pot Easy Apple Dumplings

I’ve mentioned before on the blog that I was raised by my grandmother. A strong, Southern woman who grew up on a tobacco farm. She worked hard and retired after many years in finance and office management. Even after raising two kids (my dad and aunt) she still found it in her to help raise four grandchildren and at the spry age of 70 is still helping me raise my daughter.

Many of my earliest memories revolve around her and us in the kitchen. We’ve made more desserts together than I can count. Most of her recipes come from handwritten index cards or old church cookbooks. When I was little, I used to love to pull them out of the closet and look through them for hours. In fact, I’ve shared one of her recipes before!

Here’s a bonus recipe that I found, submitted by my dad who is also a great cook. You’ll see a small, 5-6-year-old me at Bible School! Which one am I?!

While I would love to cook with as much time, effort, and heart as she puts into her meals; I cant. I am a working mom and full-time student and there just aren’t enough hours in the day to slow roast and craft perfect flavors.

Cooking Made Easy and Fast with the Power Quick Pot

I’m going to be completely honest. I was hesitant to jump on the Electric Pressure Cooker train. After all, it’s just a pressure cooker. I’ve used them on the stove top before and I never considered it magic. Having a background in cooking, I just understood that everything cooked faster because of the high temperature and steam pressure. I will also be completely honest in saying, I was way wrong.

Let’s just look at what the Power Quick Pot can do:

Programmable Pressure Cooker
Slow Cooker
Rice Cooker
Yogurt Maker
Cake Maker
Egg Cooker
Hot Pot
Sous Vide and Warmer

You can find the Power Quick Pot at Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohls, and Walmart.

With all of the possibilities, I couldn’t help but think back on my favorite recipes from my grandmother and wondered if I could tweak them to work in the Power Quick Pot. So I texted my grandma (Yes! Texted! She’s pretty in tune with the times) and asked if I could swipe her recipe books. She happily obliged and I ran off with some of my favorites.

I got home with the Trinity UMC cookbook which was my absolute favorite as a child. It’s a treasure trove of Southern Mom and Grandma recipes. I also swiped some index cards with recipes and sat down with everything, reliving my childhood.

With each turn of the page, I could remember a time when we stood in the kitchen and cooked together. The index cards smelled fragrantly of her house and there were even some smears and plastering of old sugar and pudding mixes across the pages. No doubt from messes I had made.

I chose this recipe because no sooner than I made it out the door, did she text me and tell me she had a craving and needed a picture of the Apple Dumplings recipe. So naturally, her craving became my craving. These things are sweet, buttery, luscious, mouthwatering … you have to try them!

The difference for the Power Quick Pot recipe is that the cook time will be quite different. But here’s the original recipe and list of ingredients.

Servings 20 Dumplings


  • 1 can Biscuits
  • 3 Whole, peeled Apples (Granny Smith are best)
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • 1 Cup Sugar (white)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1/4 TSP Cinnamon


  • Spay bottom of the Power Quick Pot with cooking spray. Pat out and separate canned biscuits so that you have 20. If you purchase large biscuits, you may need to cut into two pieces to achieve 20. Put an apple slice in each biscuit. Pinch the dough together to seal. Mix butter, Water, Sugar, and Cinnamon. Pour over biscuits. Add the Power Quick Pot lid and set timer for 15 minutes. Serve while still warm with whipped topping or Vanilla Ice Cream.

Feel free to add, remove, and edit to your preferences. I do recommend that you try adding a soft, caramel candy to the biscuit before sealing to get a caramel apple effect!
