Easy Country Apple Dumplings



3 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening or lard
1/2 cup butter
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 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!
