Baked Apple Dumplings

There was a restaurant I went to a long time ago that had a baked apple very similar to this. It was divine, served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I highly recommend giving this recipe a try – I’m going to very soon! Honeycrisp apples are in season right now and would be deliciously sweet and tart in this dumpling.

Baked Apple Dumplings

3 c flour

1 teas salt

3/4 c shortening

1/2 c water

6 small apples

1/2 c Brown sugar

1 teas cinnamon

1 tbsp butter

Add salt to flour & cut the shortening into it coarsely. Add water a little at a time, mixing lightly until a stiff dough is formed. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness & cut into squares about 4 inches across. Have apples peeled & cored. Place an apple in the center of each square & fill the hollow center with Brown sugar mixed with cinnamon, placing a bit of butter on top. Moisten edges of dough & bring up the corners, pinching the edges together. Brush top with water & cover with a round of dough an inch or more across. Brush dumplings with milk or egg yolk diluted with milk. Place in greased baking pan about an inch apart & bake in a moderate over about 45 minutes.
