A wonderful treat for a crisp autumn day, these Apple Dumplings may become a new family favorite.

Ingredients:

  • Dumpling Dough:
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 tablespoons chilled butter or shortening
  • 3/4 cup milkApples:
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 medium apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 egg white

Instructions:

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut solid shortening into dry ingredients, make a well in the center, and add milk. Stir just until dough is fairly free from sides of bowl. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead 8 to 10 times. Cover and chill while preparing apples. Combine sugar, butter, salt, and cinnamon and fill apple core hollows with this mixture. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into 4 squares. Place an apple on each square and spread remaining sugar mixture over apples. Bring up corners of dough to cover apple and press edges together (dampen with a little water if necessary). Make sure edges are sealed or dumplings will pop open during baking. Brush with egg white and prick tops of dumplings with a fork. Carefully transfer dumplings to a baking pan. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for about 40 minutes longer or until apples are tender when tested with a wooden pick. Serve with cream.

    You don’t have to peel the apples, it’s just as good if you don’t. You can use pears and put a little cinnamon in the crust when making it. It’s very good served with home-made ice cream. My family loves it.
