2 to 2 1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
4 to 6 Granny Smith or other cooking apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
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 5-inch squares. Place 3 or 4 pieces of apple on each square.

Sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons sugar and a sprinkling 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 dozen apple dumplings.
