Savoring a warm apple dumpling or slice of apple pie seems like one of the better ways to enjoy a rainy fall day in the Northwest.
That was the mindset of Jenniel Thompson, one of the many of people who sampled baked apple treats Sunday at Riverside Christian School’s annual apple festival, a fundraiser for the school.
“They are to die for,” the Washougal woman said of the festival’s dumplings. “The crust was so flaky.”
She had yet to try the apple pie, opting to buy a whole frozen pie instead — and bring it home to share with others.
