Apple Dumplings

Apple Dumplings are synonymous with Fall.  On a cool crisp fall day the aroma of cinnamon and apples fills the kitchen and Apple Dumplings become impossible to resist!


Apple Dumplings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 5 large Apples (Honeycrisp), peeled and cored
  • 1 egg white
  • 5 teaspoons butter
  • 8 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar, divided


Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide into five portions. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

Roll each portion of dough into a 7-in. square. Place an apple on each square. Place 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar in the center of each apple.

Gently bring up corners of pastry to each center; pinch edges to seal. If desired, cut out apple leaves and stems from dough scraps; attach to dumplings with water.  Brush each apple with egg white and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.  Place in a greased baking dish.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until apples are golden brown.

Serve with your favorite sauce

Grab a spoon and savor the taste of Fall!
