Preheat oven to 500°F. Mix cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl. Prepare crusts as directed on package. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly on surface of each crust. Cut each crust into 4 equal pieces. Place 1 apple half in center of each piece of crust. Fill center of each apple half with 1 teaspoon of the butter. Carefully fold crust up over apple half, pinching seams together to seal. Place dumplings, seam-side down, in greased 13x9-inch baking dish.
Bring sugar, water and 2 tablespoons butter to boil in small saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla; set aside.
Bake dumplings about 10 minutes or until crust begins to brown. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake 40 to 45 minutes longer or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
We had some wonderful apples grow on the tree at home this year and I plan to try this very soon, sounds wonderful!

Looks great..and going to try it soon but curious why McC didn't suggest slicing the apple instead of using the whole apple which almost doubles the cooking time??? Sure it's delicious either way.

I make this with the spices on the apple and cinn/sugar on crust and fill the center of apple with brown sugar and butter tastes sooo much better this is to plain the spices are only on the crust
