Ingredients:

Directions:
Sift together the first four ingredients.
cut in shorting (to fine meal consistency). Stir in the milk. Roll out dough on a floured board to 1/2" thick in a 18" X 12" rectangle. Cut into 6 squares.
Peel apples, cut in half and remove cores. Place 1/2 apple on each piece of dough and put 1 teaspoon sugar and some cinnamon on top of each apple. Pull up dough corners close enough to seal all edges. Tie each dumpling in a piece of cheese cloth or muslin. (Some recipes say "pudding cloths", should be soaked in cold water first and wrung out, which I assume would help prevent sticking.) Drop into a large pot of boiling water; cook for 25 minutes, keeping water at a steady slow boil. Serve with milk, sugar and cinnamon, or vanilla sauce.
