Apple Dumplings



4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 cups vegetable shortening or lard
1 egg
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup ice water


In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. With a pastry blender or fork, cut in vegetable shortening or lard until particles are the size of peas. Beat egg with fork; blend in vinegar and water. Sprinkle water mixture over flour ingredients, a tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork to mix. Gather dough together with fingers so that it cleans the bowl. Form into a couple of firm balls. Chill in the refrigerator.



Serves 6.
