Homemade Apple Dumplings

FOR THE DOUGH:

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons cold vegetable shortening
1/2 cup cold milk

Instructions

Cut two pieces of parchment paper so they're 11 inches wide and 16 inches long. Set aside.

Make the dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Sprinkle the butter cubes and shortening on top and use your fingers to work them into the dough. Stop when the mixture resembles cornmeal with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining. Add milk and stir, using a fork, until dough begins to hold together.

Turn the dough out onto one of the pieces of parchment paper; knead three times, or until the dough feels cohesive. Shape dough into a rough rectangle and cover with second piece of parchment paper. Roll dough out so that it is the same size as the parchment paper. Carefully transfer to refrigerator; let chill for 30 minutes.
