Fall Treats.

With fall finally gracing us with its presence, and apples ripe for the picking, I thought it was only right to make my favorite fall treat… Apple Dumplings! I started making these a few years ago, and they have quickly turned into a family favorite.  This recipe is so simple, that anyone can make it… and I suggest that you do. Trust me, you will thank me when you smell them.

So, here is what you have all been waiting for. The recipe. So, open up a window, turn on some Al Green, and let the smell of baked apples fill your home.

Crust

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of milk

¾ cup of shortening

3 apples peeled, cored, and halved

 

Syrup

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

¼ heaping teaspoon of cinnamon

¼ heaping teaspoon of nutmeg

¼ cup of butter

 

Pre-Heat oven to 375 F

Crust

Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Then, cut in shortening until it becomes a coarse meal. Gradually add in milk, until dough forms a ball. (may have to adjust milk depending on dough.) Roll out crust, and cut into 6 squares. Place an apple half in each square, and wrap crust around it.

Syrup

Place sugar and water over medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter. Once butter is melted, pour all of the syrup over dumplings.

Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over each dumpling, and add a pat of butter to each one.FullSizeRender.jpg

Bake 40-45 minutes until apples are soft and crust is golden brown and crispy. Serve with a big scoop of ice cream.
