Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and cornstarch. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add the water, tossing with a fork until pastry forms a ball. On a floured surface, roll into a 21-in. x 14-in. rectangle. Cut into six squares.
  2. Place one pear in center of each square. Pack pear centers with brown sugar; sprinkle with cinnamon. Brush edges of squares with milk; fold up corners to center and pinch to seal.
  3. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. For sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Add raspberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in extract. Serve warm over warm dumplings with ice cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
