For the Crust

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

pinch kosher salt

4 1/2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

1 cup milk (or just enough to make the dough stick together)

For the Filling

Juice from one lemon

6 extra small baking apples (such as Gala)

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces

For the Caramel Sauce

2 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup water

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cubed

Pinch of kosher salt

I have a recipe from the Mennonite Community Cookbook (I'm PA Dutch, so apple dumplings are very close to my heart.) It's very similar to your version:


2 C flour

2 1/2 t baking powder

1/2 t salt

2/3 C shortening

1/2 C milk

Fill the cavity of the apples with sugar and cinnamon (no measurements given). Wrap up in the pastry.


2 C brown sugar

2 C water

1/4 C butter

1/4 t cinnamon or nutmeg

Also, you don't serve these with ice cream. You pour milk or cream over them and eat them for dinner!
