I thirded this recipe so my calculations may have been off somewhere, but nonetheless, these apple dumplings were SO good. I "rounded" each measurement of cinnamon and nutmeg, just as a taste preference for more spice and didn't use the food coloring (the spices were enough natural color for me). I made 3x3" pastry squares and wrapped it along the bottom of about 1/4 an apple (I didn't see how I could completely enclose a whole apple even with a 6x6 inch square) for a more individual serving. It baked in the oven for about another 3-5 minutes for the apples to soften a bit more and to allow the syrup to thicken to an almost slimy, gooey consistency. After taking it out, I poured the surrounding syrup over the dumplings. They're even good cold--the syrup is thickened and the apple taste it more defined. I'm sure they would be great with ice cream, though. Such a tasty recipe!
