About National Apple Dumpling Day

Date When Celebrated: National Apple Dumpling Day is always observed on September 17

National Apple Dumpling Day is today. Be a member of the Apple Dumpling Gang. We are celebrating a tasty fall treat. It’s easy to make (and, even easier to buy!). Apple lovers can’t resist this pastry, filled with sweet, delicious apples.

With the arrival of fall and cool weather, two things happen: the apple harvest begins, and people turn indoors to cooking and baking again. It’s only natural that apples are a big part of the cooking scene. Among the most popular fall treats, is apple dumplings. For those of you who enjoy ice cream, some recipes include a scoop of ice cream atop a generous piece of Apple Dumpling. Sounds yummy!

Enjoy some apple dumplings today. Chances are, you haven’t had it since last Fall!

The saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” originated in the 1800s. It is believed the roots of this saying, recorded in 1866, came from the saying “Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread”. 

Be an apple expert and amaze your friends with your knowledge of pomology. See Apple Trivia.

Happy National Apple Dumpling Day!
