These are a big hit with my family and I never bring any home when I take them to church suppers. Several years ago I would make them in individual foil containers and sell them at bake sales, farmer's market, etc. I never brought any back home. A great friend of mine who is now 92 shared this recipe with me years ago and I have been making them ever since.

How To Make apple dumplin's

  • 1
    Combine sugar, water, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook five minutes; add butter, set aside.
  • 2
    Peel and core apples. Leave apples whole using a corer to get out the core of the apples.
  • 3
    Mix flour, salt and baking powder together; cut in shortening. Add milk all at once. Stir just enough until flour is moistened. Divide dough into 8 balls. Roll each ball large enough to encase the whole apple. Place apple in center of dough, add 1 teaspoon sugar, a dab of margarine, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Encase apple with dough-bringing up the dough from each corner and pinching edges together.
