Apple Roly-Poly Recipe

Publisher Photo
Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day! My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until crumbly. Add sour cream and blend until a ball forms.
  2. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Spread with softened butter; sprinkle with remaining filling ingredients.
  3. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut into 12 slices. Place slices, cut side down, in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  4. For topping, combine water, brown sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in the cream.
  5. Carefully pour hot topping over dumplings. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes or until bubbly. (Center will jiggle when dumplings are hot out of the oven but will set as dumplings stand for a few minutes.) Serve warm. Yield: 12 servings.

I followed these directions completely and it sure didnt turn out like the pix. It wasnt as thick and it dropped in when it sat to cool. I think 2 1/2 cups of water was too much. I may try it again and put less water.
