Apple Dumplings

  • 6 apples, cored but not peeled
  • Butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg

Make plain pastry dough, but not quite so rich as pie crust.  Roll out & cut into as many squares as you have apples. Set an apple  on each piece; put a little chunk butter, 1 tb sugar and some cinnamon in hole of apple.  Fold up dough around apple and prick with fork.

Heat until butter melts – 1 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tb butter. Add a few shakes of cinnamon & nutmeg if desired. Set dumplings in baking pan and pour syrup around them. Bake  at 400 degrees for 30 to-40 minutes, baste with syrup at least once.
