Of all my autumn recipes, apple dumplings are a hands-down favorite. I found this treat years ago in an Amish cookbook. A rich, homemade caramel sauce tops it off. —Lois Stache, Brillion, WI

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball; divide dough in half. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a well-floured surface, roll each portion of dough into an 8-in. square. Cut apples in half horizontally; place an apple bottom on each square. Place brown sugar and cinnamon in the core of each bottom; dot each with 2 teaspoons butter. Replace apple tops.
  3. Gently bring up corners of pastry to center; pinch edges to seal. Place in a greased 8-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine flour and water until smooth. Add the sugars, butter and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until smooth and blended. Pour over dumplings.
  5. Bake 35-40 minutes longer or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 2 servings.
