Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine syrup ingredients in saucepan.
  2. Stir over medium heat until dissolved.

  6. Stir well to blend.
  7. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  8. Add milk all at once and stir with fork until flour is well moistened.

  11. Spread apples (and raisins) over dough and sprinkle with topping.
  12. Roll as firmly as you can as you would for a jelly roll, starting at 12" edge.
