Legit Mennonite Apple Dumplings

November 23, 2020

 Legit Mennonite Apple Dumplings

5 Medium Apples (I use Honey Crisp)

For the Dough:
2 cups Flour
2.5 teaspoons Baking Powder
0.5 teaspoons Salt
2/3 cup Shortening
1/2 cup Milk (can use Almond or "milk" of your choice)
Cinnamon Sugar

2 cups Brown Sugar
2 cups Water
1/4 cup Butter (can use dairy free substitute of your choice)
1/4 teaspoons Cinnamon

Peel and Core apples. Leave whole. 

To make the dumplings:
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Cut in shortening until mixture resembles crumbles. I use my hands (it's easier). 
Add in milk and continue to mix until a dough forms. If it gets too sticky, add a sprinkle of flour. 
Roll dough out on floured surface and cut out 5 squares. 
Place apples in the center of squares and sprinkle each cavity with Cinnamon Sugar, as much as you want. 
Pat dough around each apple, securing at the top.
Place dumplings 1 inch apart in greased baking dish.

Pour sauce over each apple (recipe below)

To make the sauce:
Combine Brown sugar, water and Cinnamon. 
Cook for 5 minutes, remove from heat and add butter. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. 

Baste occasionally during the baking process. 

Serve warm with milk or ice cream! These will NOT disappoint!
