Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup butter; stir until melted. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk.
  3. Divide pastry into six portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 6-in. square. Place an apple on the center of each. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar; dot with remaining butter. Bring corners of pastry to center. Brush edges with milk; pinch edges to seal.
  4. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; drizzle with reserved syrup. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.

MY REVIEW

"My husband has been trying to get me to make apple dumplings for months and I finally did today. These are so easy and tasted fantastic. I was so pleased with the flavor and how simple these were to put together, all that was missing was the ice cream!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 5, 2012

"These are Exactly what I have been searching for! I tweaked it a bit as far as ingredients, i.e. less sugar and more cinnamon. My Aunt used to make these for us when I was little and I have tried to duplicate her recipe, to no avail on the perfect taste! However, these DID IT! Thanks so much for sharing...."

"Delicious! Tastes great with the addition of a little bit of rhubarb in it as well!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2009

"These are delicious! The syrup seems thin, but during the baking process it's transformed into a delicious thick sauce. The pastry is so tender and good! I wouldn't change a thing, and I'll keep the recipe with those that are my stand-bys."
