Combine sugar, water, spices, and food coloring; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add butter. Combine dry ingredients; cut in shortening till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk all at once and stir just until flour is moistened.
On lightly floured surface, roll about 1/4" thick into 18x12" rectangle. Cut into 6" squares. Place apple slices in each square(about1/2 apple). You can also use a whole cored apple, Sprinkle each apple generously with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; dot with butter. Moisten edges of squares. Fold in corners to center and pinch edges together.

Personal Notes:
At the farm, we had this scrawny little apple tree. That little tree produced more apples! These apple dumplings were a favorite way to use them.
