Easy Country Apple Dumplings

Easy Country Apple Dumplings

The aroma of apples and cinnamon make this apple dumpling recipe the perfect fall treat. Add a scoop of ice cream for a truly decadent dessert!

Easy Country Apple Dumplings



3 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening or lard
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup ice water

Step 2: Filling


1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins
6 large apples, cored and peeled,



Cut ingredients in a mixing bowl with a pastry blender. Add ice water one tablespoon at a time (this will prevent the dough from clumping together). Then form the dough into a large ball and place in the fridge for one hour.


Mix all these ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside. Take the cold dough out of the fridge and roll out on on a cutting board into a large rectangle, 24 x 16 inches. Cut the dough into 6 equal pieces. Core your 6 apples and place each apple in the center of a square of pastry. Pour the sugar mixture into the center of each apple. Fold dough around the apple. Place the wrapped apples into a 9 x 13 ungreased pan. Bake for 30-35 min. at 375 F. When done, place each in a dessert bowl, drizzle with honey, and serve!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
