GRANDMA'S APPLE DUMPLINGS

This is an old recipe I found in my mother-in-laws recipes.

Makes 6 dumplings.

Enough pastry for a 2-crust pie
6 medium tart apples (Jonathan's)
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
3 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter
Mix together enough sugar and cinnamon to fill the apple cavities.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

On a floured surface, roll pastry thin and cut into 7-inch squares. Pare and core each apple. Boil together the sugar, water, 3 tablespoons butter, and cinnamon for 3minutes. Place an apple on each square of pastry. Fill cavities of apples with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Dot each with the tablespoon of butter. Bring opposite points of pastry up over apple. Overlap, moisten and seal. Lift carefully, place a little apart in a baking dish. Pour the hot syrup around dumplings. Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 425 degrees until apples are tender and crust is nicely browned.
