Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
Melt the butter and whisk in light brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground cloves.
Roll out the store-bought pie crust and cut into four 8-inch squares.
Place the peeled and cored apples in the center of each square and fill each apple with the melted butter sugar mixture.
Bring the corners of each pastry square up over the apple and pinch edges at the top to seal.
Place the apple dumplings in the prepared baking pan, and set aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the 3 tablespoons of butter until deep golden brown and fragrant. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
Using the same skillet, melt the granulated sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is melted and completely dissolved.
Reduce the heat to low, whisk in the browned butter, and then slowly begin adding the heavy whipping cream, whisking constantly to avoid splattering. Let the caramel cook until it thickens and deepens in color, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove the caramel sauce from heat and whisk in the salt. Pour the caramel sauce evenly over the apple dumplings.
Bake the dumplings at 350°F for 55-60 minutes, until the pastry is a deep golden brown and the apples are tender, basting occasionally with the sauce.
Spoon any remaining caramel sauce collected in the pan over the top of the dumplings, and serve immediately while warm.
