Apple Dumplings

A wonderful treat for a crisp autumn day, these dumplings may become a new family favorite.


Dumpling Dough:
1-3/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons chilled butter or shortening
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 medium apples, peeled and cored
1 egg white


Mix together dry ingredients. Cut solid shortening into dry ingredients, make a well in the center, and add milk. Stir just until dough is fairly free from sides of bowl. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead 8 to 10 times. Cover and chill while preparing apples. Combine sugar, butter, salt, and cinnamon and fill apple core hollows with this mixture. Roll out dough to ¼ inch thick and cut into 4 squares. Place an apple on each square and spread remaining sugar mixture over apples. Bring up corners of dough to cover apple and press edges together (dampen with a little water if necessary). Make sure edges are sealed or dumplings will pop open during baking. Brush with egg white and prick tops of dumplings with a fork. Carefully transfer dumplings to a baking pan. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for about 40 minutes longer or until apples are tender when tested with a wooden pick. Serve with cream.
