Apple Dumplings With Cinnamon Syrup

“Got this in a recipe swap a few years ago from a woman who owned a small diner. She says customers really enjoyed these, maybe you will too. Eat warm from the oven or re-heat in microwave, scrumptious with vanilla ice cream. Ovens vary so bake time is a guess.”

  2. Peel and slice apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Put syrup ingredients in medium saucepan. Boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Roll each pastry piece into a circle. Place apples in center of each circle. Wet edges of pastry and bring up edges around the apples. Pinch to seal.
  5. Place dumplings in a 9x12 baking dish. Pour syrup over the top of dumplings.
  6. Bake at 425° about 5 minutes or until crust just starts to brown. Reduce temperature to 350° and bake 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
