Ground cinnamon and Red Hots give a cozy spiced flavor to the red sauce poured over these tender apple dumplings. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to cool the palate. —Carol Hutchinson, Lansing, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 6 medium tart apples, cored and peeled
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Red Hots
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Mix flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water to crumb mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide into six portions. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Preheat oven to 350°. On a well floured surface, roll each portion into a 7-in. square. Place an apple on each pastry square. Mix sugar and cinnamon; place 2 tablespoons sugar mixture into the core of each apple.
Gently bring up corners of pastry to center; pinch edges to seal. Place into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until smooth and blended. Pour over apples. Bake until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown, 35-40 minutes longer, basting occasionally with sauce. Serve warm. Yield: 6 servings.
