This is a big hit with my family. And an extra-special treat since I don't make them very often.

How to Make Apple Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  1. For syrup, mix 1 cup of the sugar (I use brown sugar sometimes), 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat; stir in butter.
  2. For pastry, mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening till course crumbs form. Add 6-8 TBSP COLD water, a little at a time, mixing till moistened. Form into a ball. Roll into an 18X12-inch rectangle; cut into 6-inch squares.
  3. Peel and core apples. Place one apple on each pastry square. Combine remaining sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and sprinkle over fruit. Moisten edges of pastry; fold corners to center on top of fruit. Pinch to seal. Place in an 11X17X2-inch baking dish. Pour syrup over.
  4. Bake at 375F about 45 minutes or till fruit is tender and pastry is lightly browned.
