List of Ingredients
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups shredded, peeled cooking apples (3 to 4 medium), such as Golden
Delicious, Rome, Granny Smith, Jonathan, or Newton Pippin
1. For sauce, in a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, the water,
margarine, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling and boil
for 5 minutes; set aside (should have about 2 cups sauce).
2. For dough, in a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and
salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pea-size. Make
well in center. Add milk all at once. Stir just until moistened. Knead
dough on a lightly floured surface 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly
smooth. Roll out to 12x10-inch rectangle.
3. For filling, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; set
aside. Sprinkle apples evenly over dough. Sprinkle with sugar mixture.
Roll dough into spiral, starting from a long side. Pinch seam to seal.
Cut into twelve 1-inch-thick pieces. Place in 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 50 minutes
or until golden. Makes 12 servings.
