Apple Dumplings


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 apples
  • sugar
  • butter
  • cinnamon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter


Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening. Add milk all at once and stir only until all the flour is moistened. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 6 five-inch squares. Put flour quarters of pared apples on each square. (Dice the apples, if you prefer.) Sprinkle each square with about 1 T. sugar. (If the apples are unusually sour, you will want to use more.), cinnamon and dot with butter. Fold corners to center and pinch together. Place dumplings an inch apart in a 10x12 inch pan. Cover with hot syrup.

Mix all syrup ingredients in a saucepan and heat to dissolve sugar. Pour over dumplings and bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
