Apple Dumpling Sales
Apple Dumplings — those tasty apples wrapped in pastry and covered in sweet cinnamon syrup are returning to help raise funds for the Back to the Cloister Fund. These delicious treats, created by Achenbach’s Bakery, will be joined this year by apple and pumpkin pies to round out the flavors of fall. Apple Dumplings will be available for $4.50 each.
The funds raised in this annual event help return original artifacts to the Cloister museum collection. Over the years, apple dumplings have been used to purchase one-of-a-kind furniture, rare music manuscripts and the original 1739 deed to the historic site — more than 100 items since the creation of the fund more than 35 years ago. This year, the apple dumplings and other apple treats like pies will be available on October 11 and 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., but there is no guarantee supplies will last until the end of the day on Saturday, so plan to make your purchases early.
No admission is required to purchase apple dumplings. Friday will also feature the Community Days school program with activities and demonstrations on the site from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Guided tours of the historic site and demonstrations are available at the regular admission rate.
