apple dumpling rolls

Oh my deliciousness!

2 cups sugar

2 cups water

1/4 cup butter

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup shortening

2/3 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3 cups peeled, shredded cooking apples (3 to 4 medium)

*Sauce:  In large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, water, butter, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes; set aside.

*Dough:  In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.  Using pastry blender, cut in shortening until pea-size.  Make well in center.  Add milk all at once.  Stir just until moistened.  Knead dough on lightly floured surface 10-12 strokes or until nearly smooth.  Roll out to 12x10" rectangle.

*Filling:  Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon; set aside.  Sprinkle apples evenly over dough.  Sprinkle with sugar mixture.  Roll dough into spiral, starting from a long side.  Pinch seam to seal.  Cut into twelve 1" thick pieces.  Place in 13x9x2" baking pan.  Pour sauce over dumplings (yes, use it all!).  Bake in a 350-degree oven about 50 minutes, or until golden.

Serve warm and enjoy!
