Apple Dumplings

Today I created just for fun.. I had made this apple basket and thought this image was
perfect for the image. I cut out the little strips and weaved them in and out..
Then I sponged on some Chocolate Chip ink on the edges.  I colored in my sweet 
Tania Baking from Belle's N Whistles for the front of the basket.  This was for the LSC which was to make
a "girlie" card and for my little group of sistahs on SCS which was to use apples, red,
brown and gold.

I have a recipe for you to try.. It is my MIL's secret apple dumplin recipe..It is so yummy
I made it yesterday.
Apple Dumplings
2 c. sugar
2 c. water
1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg
1/4 c. butter
Mix together to make syrup. Set aside
Pare 6 apples and then make crust:
2 c. flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. milk
Sift flour, salt and baking powder, cut in shortening.  Add milk
and mix
Roll crust 1/4 in think and cut into 5 in. squares.
Add apples in the middle with a tsp of butter and little bit of cinnamon
and sugar.  Fold corners to the center and pinch edges together
Place 1 in apart in greased pan.  Pour syrup over them and bake
at 375 for 35 minutes.  ( I did mine longer as I don't like crunchy apples)

It is so easy and so good.  The syrup will be thin but it thickens as it cooks and cools.
