Ingredients

  • Crust: 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup shortening, 6 tbsps cold water

  • Filling: 6 small apples, 3 tbsps brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 3 tbsps butter

  • Sauce: 1 cup water, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsps butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Directions

Crust: In a medium bowl mix flour and shortening until small crumbs form. Stir in water just until dough forms. Wrap in plastic and place in refrigerator to rest. Filling: Peel and core apples. In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Dice butter into small pieces. Set aside. Sauce: In a small saucepan bring all sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Reduce to low and cook another 5 minutes to thicken. Assembly: Cut dough into 6 equal pieces. On a floured surface roll out each piece into a 6 inch circle using your rolling pin. Place one apple in the middle of each dough circle. Sprinkle with spice mixture and place a few pieces of butter in each apple core. With wet fingers bring up each corner of dough until Apple is completely wrapped. Set in muffin cups. Place muffin pan on a baking sheet. Drizzle half of the sauce over the dumpling. Bake for 25 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden brown. Serve each in a dessert bowl with remaining sauce spooned over the top.
