“Taste of Home” recipe submitted by Jenny Leighty from West Salem, OH
Ingredients for the Dumplings:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1-1/3 cups 2% milk
3/4 to 1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 cups chopped apples (about 4 medium)
Ingredients for the Sauce:
1-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened (dough will be soft and sticky).
Turn dough onto a floured surface. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon to within 1 in. of edges; top with apples. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Using a serrated knife, cut into 12 slices. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan, cut side down.
In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients; bring to a boil, whisking to blend. Cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until thickened. Pour over top.
Bake, uncovered, 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yield: 1 dozen.
