CHeck it out here: Meal Plan Monday #17 Southern Plate
adapted by Paula George from recipe on Southern Food.com
These remind me of the ones served by Wendy's YEARS ago!
2 to 2 1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
6 Granny Smith or other cooking apples, cored, peeled
sugar, approximately 1/2 cup, for sprinkling apples
butter, cut in small pieces
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups hot water
1/4 cup margarine melted
heavy cream or ice cream, optional
Combine flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually add milk, stirring to make a soft dough. Roll dough into a 1/8" thick rectangle on a lightly floured surface; cut into 8-inch squares.
Place 1 cored, peeled apple on each square. Sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons sugar and a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg to taste;
dot with butter. Moisten edges of each dumpling with water; bring corners to center, pinching edges to seal.
Place dumplings 1 inch apart in a lightly greased shallow baking dish. Combine 2 cups sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg,
2 cups hot water and 1/4 cup butter or margarine; stir to dissolve sugar. Pour syrup over dumplings.
Bake at 375° for 35 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve hot with cream or ice cream.
Makes about 1/2 dozen apple dumplings.
p.s. I bake mine in a cast iron skillet
