Favorite Ingredients Friday - Apple Dumplings

This one is a fall favorite in my family - I don't make it near as well as my mom, but it's always good! Sometimes, when I'm feeling extra lazy, I substitute Pillsbury Crescent rolls for the dough portion, and just roll the apples up in that - still turns out excellent!

Apple Dumplings

2 c Sugar
2 c Water
¼ c Margarine
¼ t Nutmeg
¼ t Cinnamon

Mix together and boil 5 minutes.

¾ c Shortening
2 c Flour
½ t Salt
2 t Baking powder
2/3 c Milk

Cut shortening into flour, salt, & baking powder. Add milk. Roll out to ¼ in. thick.

4-5 Apples
¼ c Sugar

Peel & grate apples—spread over top of dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar. Roll up like cinnamon rolls. Cut & lay flat in 13 x 9. Pour sauce over top. Bake at 425 for 35 minutes.
