Grandma Buelah's Apple Dumplings Recipe

Buelah and Harry Hughson settled in Sioux County, Nebraska in the early 1900's. Grandma had a reputation for being a talented musician, avid card player and a marvelous cook! I always make a double batch of her dumplings for my husband and our four children.
