Aunt Mary’s Apple Dumplings 

Everyone says Aunt Mary’s Apple Dumplings are the best. I would have to agree but I have a confession to make, I don’t really like apples. Or any fruit for that matter. No, I am the girl who peels off the delicious warm outer layer of the apple dumpling and devours it with a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Some lucky soul next to me will get the “guts” or as you would probably call it, the apple, of my dumpling. If this were a perfect world I’d sit next to someone who didn’t like the warm flaky crust that has been drenched with a sticky butter and brown sugar sauce. They could have my apple and I could have  another serving of that warm flaky crust with sticky sauce. But this world is far from perfect and until then I will just have to deal…

In order for your apple dumpling making experience to be more enjoyable there are two things you are going to need.




  1. You are going to want a good apple corer. I didn’t have one and tried coring the apples with a knife and it was a mess, I don’t recommend doing it this way. Not to mention this was very dangerous, I cut myself twice while doing it this way. so learn from my mistake and buy an apple corer. I would actually recommend buying an all in one apple corer & peelers but I will leave a link to both.

2. You are going to need some good baking apples. If you use a different type of apple they will not bake properly. Personally, I like using granny smith apples. They seem to bake very nice and everyone loves them.

Instructions
Dough & Apples
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and core all 6 apples. In a medium sized mixing bowl, in this order, add flour, baking powder, salt, shortening, and milk. Use a wooden spoon to mix. Once mixture begins to ball up and form into dough, use hands to gently knead till dough resembles pie crust. On a lightly floured surface roll out dough. Cut dough into 6 even squares. Sit an apple on one of the squares and bring all four corners up over the top of the apple, use hands to gently pinch dough together at the top of the apple so it stays. Gently squeeze the dough so it forms around the apple. Repeat with the rest of the apples. Place apples in a grease 13 X 9 pan. Pour sauce (instructions below) over the apples and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Sauce
  1. In a medium sized sauce pot add brown sugar, water, butter, and cinnamon. Heat all four ingredients on medium high heat until everything is melted and a sauce has formed. Pour sauce over the apples. Sauce will thicken in the oven.
