2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon cinnmon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup margarine
3 tablespoons cinnamon candies (small red
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup Crisco shortening
1/2 cup milk
8 granny smith apples, whole, peeled and cored
Cinnamon and sugar
Butter slices

In a saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, 2 cups water, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, and 3 tablespoons cinnamon candies. Boil the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring so it doesn't boil over. Remove from the heat and add 1/4 cup margarine. Set aside to cool.
In a bowl, mix the pastry by combining 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 3/4 cup Crisco, and 1/2 cup milk. Roll out half the pastry on a pastry board into a 12"x12" square. Cut into 4 pieces. Repeat. Peel and core 8 medium granny smith apples, leaving the apples whole. Place an apple in the middle of each of the 8 pastry squares. Sprinkle each apple with cinnamon and sugar. Place a slice of butter into the core of each apple. Fold the pastry to encase the apple. Place apples into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish, 1 " apart. Pour the sauce over the apples. Bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Make sure the apples are done. Test at 40 minutes. If apples are not done, reduce heat to 325 and continue to cook until done.
