  • 2 C. sugar
  • 2 C. water
  • 1/4 C. butter
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 C. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 C. Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 2/3 C. milk
  • 1/4 C. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 425ºF (220°C). Grease an 111/2” x 8″ x 2″ (30 cm x 20 cm x 5 cm) baking dish well.
  2. Crust: Prepare Classic Crisco®Pie Crust. Roll out two-thirds of pastry into 14″ (35 cm) square on lightly floured surface. Cut into 4 squares. Roll remaining pastry into 14″ x 7″ (35 cm x 17.5 cm) rectangle. Cut into 2 squares.
  3. Filling: Place 1 apple in centre of each pastry square. Combine nuts, raisins and Ground Saigon Cinnamon. Spoon into centre of apples. Moisten corners of each square with water. Bring 2 opposite corners of pastry up over apple and press together. Repeat with other corners. Press pastry seams together along sides of dumpling. Place dumplings in prepared baking dish.
  4. Sauce: Combine syrup and water in a bowl, until well mixed. Pour carefully around dumplings. (This will be a tight fit.)
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Spoon syrup over dumplings several times during baking. Serve warm.
