  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease one 13x9 inch baking pan. Combine 1/2 cup of the white sugar with the ground cinnamon and the ground nutmeg; set aside.
  2. Measure sifted flour, add baking powder, salt, and 3 tablespoons sugar, and sift again. Cut shortening into sifted ingredients until mixture looks like coarse meal. Add milk, mixing until a soft dough is formed.
  3. Knead dough on lightly floured board half a minute. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to a 1/8 inch thickness. Cut eight 5 inch squares out of the dough. Place an apple half on each square. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of the sugar-spice mixture. Moisten edges of dough and bring corners up over apples, pressing edges together. Place covered apples in the prepared baking pan with joined edges either on top or underneath the apples.
  4. Mix together brown sugar, butter, salt, and water; bring to a boil. Pour over dumplings in pan.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 45 to 50 minutes, or until apples are tender. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings. The brown sugar mixture forms a delicious butterscotch sauce around the dumplings.

This recipe is quite tasty. I recommend using very tart apples, and cutting them into quarters instead of halves, then rolling the crust to a very very thin layer which can be cut into 16 sect...

These were a little bit of work having to make pastry dough, but they were really yummy. I served them with vanilla ice cream which was wonderful. My sauce did not turn out, though, it was run...

The taste of these dumplings is definately 5 stars, but the time it takes to make them bumped it down a notch. Between peeling and coring the apples, making the crust, and making the sauce, the...

I made the dumplings spaced out to make the look more decorative. It worked but they spread out and became quite the filling desert. I had these warm with ice-cream as a desert and then again ...

These turned out wonderfully. The sauce was thick and very flavourful. I will definitely be making these again.

You don't need the butterscotch topping for this to be good. The crust came out excellent, and I used whole wheat pastry flour.

I loved this recipe!! My husband was in heaven. We loved it so much I am going to make it again this weekend for a dinner party. A keeper in my book!
