Apple dumplings

APPLE DUMPLINGS

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
6 apples, peeled and cored
sugar, butter and cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup butter
1 1/3 cups hot water
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
PREPARATION:
Core each apple and slice in half, top to bottom (this ensures apples will bake through).

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening.
Add milk; stir to form soft dough.
On a lightly floured board, knead to shape then roll out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 6 squares, about 6 to 7-inches each. Place an apple on each square. Top each apple with a little sugar, a dab of butter and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Bring dough up to cover apple and pinch edges to seal. Place in greased pan.
Combine brown sugar, butter, hot water, nutmeg and cinnamon; pour over dumplings.
Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake until done, about 30 minutes.

I would not use the Bramley for your dish because they "fall" but for double crust pies and apple sauce they are beyond compare.

It is much easier than waiting until after to peel them.

I MEANT...is it necessary to peel them? Would they cook well with skin on or would it impact the baking time etc. I normally make apple blossoms with the skin on.

Most likely a personal preference. I peel mine because the Ogre I live with wants them that way.
