Apple Dumplings

From the kitchen of Jan Evans

All this was lacking was vanilla ice cream... yum!

2 c. sugar
2 c. water
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter
2 c. flour
3/4 c. shortening
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
about 4 apples, grated


Mix the sugar, water, cloves, and cinnamon together in a pan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add the 1/2 cup of butter, and let cool while preparing the rest of the dumplings. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in the shortening and then add the milk. Roll out dough to 1/4" thick rectangle. Cover generously with grated apples, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and roll up as for jelly roll and cut into 1" slices. Place in pan (so it looks like cinnamon rolls) and pour the syrup over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
