Ingredients for making Amish Apple Dumplings Recipe

  • cooking spray
  • 6 medium baking apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup shortening
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 cups brown sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions for making Amish Apple Dumplings Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Set apples aside in a cold water bath while you prepare the dough.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add shortening and cut together with a pastry blender or a fork until crumbly. Add milk and stir until dough comes together.
  4. Combine 1 cup brown sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. Separate dough into six equal portions and roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness. Place an apple in the center of each dough portion and fill the core with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Wrap each apple in dough and place into the prepared pan.
  5. Combine remaining brown sugar, water, butter, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted, about 5 minutes. Pour syrup over dumplings.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until dough is golden brown and apples are soft, about 40 minutes.
