Apple Dumpings

According to Mom, these are "crazy good." After typing the recipe, I think you'd have to be good and crazy to make them (or at least have some time on your hands).

Directions

Combine first three ingredients; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add milk, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball. Roll pastry to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface, shaping into a 20 x 14 inch rectangle. Cut pastry into six 7-inch squares with a fluted pastry wheel. Peel and core apples; cut each in half crosswise. Combine 1 tbsp of sugar and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Add apples, tossing to coat. Place 1 apple half, cut side down, on each pastry square; dot each apple half with 1 tsp butter. Sprinkle each with 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Moisten edges of each pastry square with water; bring corners to center, pressing edges to seal. Place dumplings in a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Bake at 375 degree for 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is lightly browned. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, orange juice, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered for 4 minutes or until butter melts and sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Pour syrup over dumplings; cover with aluminum foil, and let stand 5 minutes.
