    Place a peeled and cored apple in the center of the dough. Sprinkle about a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar in the hole. Using hands mold the dough around the apple, bringing sides of dough towards the top of apple, making sure entire apple is covered. The dough is so easy to work with. Place Apples in a greased 9 x 13 pan.

    Pour sauce around the dumplings and just a little over dumplings. Halfway through baking time baste the apples with the sauce. Bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until apple is tender. I slide a slender knife inside to test.
