Apple Dumplings
What You Need:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 5 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons dried currants
  • ╝ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A double recipe of Short - Crust Pastry
  • 6 large, firm tart cooking apples
  • Water
  • 6 teaspoons sugar
  • Custard sauce or whipped cream

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 375░F. Using a pastry brush, coat a large baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the softened butter. In a mixing bowl, cream the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and the brown sugar together by beating and mashing them against the sides of the bowl with a large spoon until they are light and fluffy. Beat in the lemon juice, lemon peel, currants and cinnamon. Set aside.

    2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the pastry into a circle about ╝ inch thick. With a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut the dough into 8-inch rounds using a small plate or pot lid as a guide. Roll the remaining half of the pastry into a circle and cut into 8-inch rounds as before.

    3. Peel and core each apple, and pack each cavity tightly with about 2 tablespoons of the currant mixture. Place the apple in the center of a pastry round and bring the pastry up around it, twisting the edges tightly together at the top.

    4. Arrange the dumplings, seam side up, on the baking sheet, and bake in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes. With a pastry brush, moisten the tops of the dumplings with water, and sprinkle each one with 1 teaspoon of the sugar.

    5. Return to the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the sugar is glazed and the pastry is golden brown. Serve at once, accompanied by custard sauce or whipped cream.

    To Make: 6 dumplings
