These warm and comforting apple dumplings are incredible by themselves or served with ice cream. You can decorate each dumpling by cutting 1-inch leaves and a 1/2-inch stem from the leftover dough. —Robin Lendon, Cincinnati, Ohio

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 760 calories, 40 g fat (16 g saturated fat), 41 mg cholesterol, 466 mg sodium, 97 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide into eight portions. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Roll each portion of dough between two lightly floured sheets of waxed paper into a 7-in. square. Place an apple on each square. Place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar in the center of each apple.
  3. Gently bring up corners of pastry to each center; pinch edges to seal. If desired, cut out apple leaves and stems from dough scraps; attach to dumplings with water. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  4. In a large saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Bring just to a boil, stirring until blended. Pour over apples.
  5. Bake 50-55 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown, basting occasionally with sauce. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2015

"I wouldn't even give this recipe one star. The crust was terrible! I followed the recipe exactly like it said and all the dough did was fall apart. I don't know how this got a good review , Because this is the worse recipe ever. Threw the dough away after using it for one apple and got a great recipe out of one of my grandmas recipe books."
