1Make syrup, using sugar, water, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter...bring to a boil for about a minute, set aside.
2Pare and core apples, cut as to your choice.
3Prepare crust: Mix flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening. Add water... or... use 1 crust recipe for your favorite recipe.
4Roll 1/4" thick (I made 4 dumplins). Arrange apples on each crust, sprinkle generously w/ additional sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dot w/ butter. Fold diagonal corners to center. Pinch edges together. Place 1" apart in greased baking pan.
5Pour syrup over it. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes. Watch closely.....The syrup can get VERY thick....
