How To Make Classic and Taste Apple Dumplings

Apple Dumplings Recipe

·         3 cups all-purpose flour
·         1 teaspoon salt
·         1 cup shortening
·         1/3 cup cold water
·         8 medium tart apples, peeled and cored
·         8 teaspoons butter
·         9 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar, divided
·         1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
·         1 cup water
·         1/2 cup butter, cubed

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide into 8 portions. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Roll each portion of dough between 2 lightly floured sheets of waxed paper into a 7-in. square. Place an apple on each square. Place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar in the center of each apple.
  3. Gently bring up corners of pastry to each center, trimming any excess; pinch edges to seal. If desired, cut out apple leaves and stems from dough scraps; attach to dumplings with water. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  4. In a large saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Bring just to a boil, stirring until blended. Pour over apples.
  5. Bake 50-55 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown, basting occasionally with sauce. Serve warm.
