 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Sugar
  • 2 c Water
  • 1/4 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Nutmeg
  • 1/4 c Butter
  • 6 ts Apples
  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 3/4 c Shortening
  • 3/4 c Milk


Combine sugar, water, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Heat over
medium heat until mixture becomes syrup; add butter. Pare and core apples;
cut into fourths. Sift flour, salt, baking powder into bowl. Cut in
shortening with a pastry knife (or a regular table knife) until mixture
becomes crumbly. Add milk all at once and stir just until moistened. Roll
dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut dough into 6 - 5 inch squares.
Arrange 4 pieces of apple on each square and sprinkle with additional
sugar, cinnamon. Fold corners to center of each square and pinch edges
together to seal dumplings (make sure they are sealed tightly and no apple
is sticking out!). Place dumplings in buttered baking dish. Pour syrup over
dumplings. Baste dumplings with the syrup once or twice while baking.
Bake: 375F 35 minutes
