Making Home Made Apple Dumpings

Yes, Home Made Apple Dumplings..... Delicious!

You'll have to make your own dough for it though.

3 cups of bread flour
2 teaspoons yeast
300 mls water
4 teaspoons sugar  { you want a sweet bread }

Combine your dough ingredients, then put it into a plastic bowl and cover with some plastic wrap.

Every hour or so give it a bit of a rough up and let sit again.

When you are ready to do your dumplings, peel and cut about 6 apples.  Give them a quick wash.  They will go into your dish NOT cooked.   Yep, they need to be RAW when you roll them up in your dough.

Roll your dough out - long is preferred.  Be very generous and lather on a TON of butter { a couple of good tablespoons worth in fact }.   Cake it over with a TON of brown sugar.  Be generous with that too.  Then add your chopped apples all over the top.  Now, roll up your apple dumpling roll.  Cut into large and generous { yes, that seems to be the key word to this whole process, and it works, so definitely use it } portions.  Somewhere between 1 - 2 inches.  Line your buttered baking dish with these cut rolls.

Place into the oven for about 35 mins or until the bread portion looks cooked and golden brown.

Let cool on oven top.

That's it.  A little time consuming if you are waiting on the dough rising etc...  But it will all be worth it - you want your bread portion to be really, really, really good.  And it needs that time to develop the gluten etc.. for a good bread. 

After that you will be praised as an amazing cook!
The crowds will beg you for more!
You will become a legend in your own kitchen!
