Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shortening
4 to 5 tablespoons cold water
2 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 5 medium)
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup butter
vanilla ice cream

Instructions

Combine the flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. On floured surface roll out dough to a 12-inch x 18-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 squares. Place 1/3 cup chopped apples in the center of each square. Brush edges of dough with water, fold up corners to center and pinch to seal. Place in a greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Combine the brown sugar, water and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour over dumplings. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until apples are tender. Serve warm with ice cream.
