Apple Dumplings with Sauce

3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup shortening 1/3 cup cold water 8 medium tart apples, peeled and cored 8 teaspoons butter 9 teaspoons cinnamon sugar, divided sauce: 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar 1 cup water 1/2 cup butter, cubed


Step - 1

Combine flour and salt in a large basin; combine in shortening until crumbly. Incorporate water gradually while mixing the dough with a utensil until a ball forms. Constrain to eight portions. Refrigerate until easily handled.  

Preheat oven to 350°. Roll each portion of dough between 2 lightly floured sheets of waxed paper into a 7-in. square. Place an apple on each square. Place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar in the center of each apple.

Step - 2

Pinch the edges to seal while gently bringing up corners of dough to each center, removing any excess. If desirable, use dough scraps to create apple leaves and stems; adhere to dumplings using water.  

Step - 3

Place dumplings in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish that has been greased. Dot with fifty percent of the remaining cinnamon sugar.  

Step - 4

Gather the ingredients for the sauce in a large saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil while stirring to combine. Sprinkle fruits with the remaining cinnamon sugar after pouring.  

Step - 5

After 50 to 55 minutes, bake the pastry and apples until tender and golden brown, basting intermittently with the sauce. Keep toasty.
