Apple Dumplings

  • Biscuit dough
  • Apples, pared and cored, cut in halves
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon, ground
  • Butter
Make the biscuit dough, the same as baking powder biscuit (see Baking Powder Biscuit recipe), only adding a little more shortening. Take a piece of dough out on the molding board and roll, roll, roll out almost as thin as pie crust. Cut into square pieces large enough to cover an apple. Put into the middle of each pice 2 apple halves. Sprinkle a spoonful of sugar and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Turn the ends of the dough over the apple and close them tight. Lay the dumplings in a heavily buttered dripping pan, the smooth side upward. When the pans are filled, put a small piece of butter on top of each and sprinkle over a large handful of sugar. Turn in a cup of boiling water. Bake in a oven heated to 350F at 350 degrees F for 45 glorious minutes (be patient, you rascal). Baste with the liquor once while baking. Serve with pudding sauce or cream and sugar.
