Apple Dumplings

I used homemade pastry, but refrigerated pie crusts will work as well. These dumplings are great with ice cream for dessert or alone for breakfast.
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 round pastry
2 apples, cored and cut into slices
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

1. Heat brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until butter melts and sugar begins to dissolve. Remove from heat, stir in cream and vanilla, and cook, stirring often, until mixture is smooth.
2. Roll out pastry, and cut into 3-inch circles. Wrap pastry around apple slices, pinching edges to seal. Place in a baking dish, and pour caramel over apple slices. Combine sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over apple slices.
3. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until done. Serve immediately.
