Apple Dumplings


  • 8 medium tart cooking apples
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the Pastry:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 4-6 tablespoons cold water

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Peel and core apples. Combine sugar, butter, salt, and cinnamon and fill each apple with part of the mixture.
  2. Sift four and salt together and cut in shortening with a pastry blender. Add water, using only a small portion at a time, until mixture will hold together. Divide dough into 8 parts.
  3. Roll out each portion to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface, cut into squares large enough to cover apples. Place apple on each square and bring corners together at top; moisten edges and pinch together to hold apple in place.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until apples are tender.
