Step 1

Fill the cored center of each apple with cinnamon candies.

Step 2

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.

Step 3

Cut 2/3 cup of the butter into the flour mixture until fine and crumbly. Sprinkle the milk over the mixture until moist, pressing it into a ball. Roll out the dough about 1/4-inch thick on a floured board and cut into 6-inch squares.

Step 4

Place an apple on each square and bring the dough up around to cover it completely.

Step 5

Moisten the top edges with water and fasten it securely on top of the apple - whole cloves may be used to secure it.

Step 6

Place the dumplings 1-inch apart in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish or pan.

Step 7

Combine the brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat for 3 minutes, remove from the heat and stir in the remaining butter.

Step 8

Pour the syrup over the dumplings and bake in a preheated 375-degrees Fahrenheit oven for 35-40 minutes, basing every 15 minutes.

Step 9

Serve hot with chilled rich milk, cream, or whipped cream.

Delicious and easy enough to make. I made 2 apples, cutting down the ingredients. Ice cream on the side is how I rolled. Yum!

I had a bag of those red cinnamon candies left over from Valentine's day, so chose this recipe to use them up. My sister and I made these together, cutting down the recipe. We loved them topped with some whip cream!
