  • 6 oz short crust or flaky pastry
  • Demerara sugar
  • Egg white for glazing (optional)
  • 4 good-sized cooking apples
  • Cloves (optional)

  • How To Cook:
    1. Make the pastry, peel and core the apples.

    2. Divide the pastry into 4 pieces and roll out to a size large enough to enclose an apple.

    3. Put one apple on each piece, fill the center hole with brown sugar, add a clove, if used, and gather the pastry round the apple, damping the edges to make them stick together; press lightly.

    4. Place on a greased baking sheet, join downwards, glaze with egg white and bake in a moderately hot oven (425F) until the pastry is brown.

    5. Reduce the heat and continue to cook until the apples feel tender when tested with a skewer.

    6. Serve hot with custard sauce.

    7. For boiled apple dumplings, fill the fruit as above and enclose in rolled-out suet crust pastry.

    8. Tie each dumpling in a scalded floured cloth and boil steadily for 1 - 1 hours.

    9. Remove the cloths, place the apple dumplings on a hot dish and sprinkle with sugar; serve at once.
