Homemade Apple Dumplings

Ingredients

  • Sauce Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbls butter

Dough Ingredients

  • 2 cups all flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup Crisco shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 small Macintosh or Gala Apples about 3 inches in diameter Peeled and cored. Do not cut in half I used Gala, leave them whole.

Instructions

  • Make the sauce first so it has time to cool down.
  • Make the dough and refrigerate it until you have peeled and cored your apples.

Sauce Directions

  • I put all the sauce ingredients together in a medium saucepan. When it comes to a boil, I let it boil a minute or two to thicken a little bit.

For the dough

  • Place the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry blender. Add milk all at once. Stir with a fork until the dough just forms a ball. Place in the refrigerator until you have peeled and cored the apples.
  • Peel and core the apples. You can keep the apples from turning brown by placing them in cold water while you work.
  • I divide the dough into six equal portions and roll them out on a lightly floured surface individually. You can also roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface long enough to fit 6 apples on it and cut the dough into six squares.
  • Place the apples on a dough square, fill the center with butter, sprinkle sugar over top then sprinkle cinnamon over top.
  • Mold the dough around the apple, making sure there are no opening for the filling to escape from. Place the apples in a 13×9 inch baking pan. Spacing them about an inch apart. Pour the sauce over the dumplings , then sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 35 minutes. Spoon the sauce on the bottom of the pan over the apple dumplings after they come out of the oven.
