3 Tbsp butter or margarine
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp allspice
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/3 c. sifted brown sugar
Pastry (pie crust) based of 2 c. flour
8 med apples, peeled and cored
3 Tbsp jelly or orange marmalade
1 1/2 c. boiling water
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. fruit juice; see note
Food color, optional

- Make a paste of butter, spices and brown sugar
- Roll out pastry to 1/8" thickness; cut into eight 6" squares. Place an apple in the center of each; put jelly or marmalade in cavity, and spread spicy paste over each apple.
- Moisten edges of pastry; bring points together over the apple; seal sides firmly. Roll leftover pastry; cut into "streamers" to lay across the top of dumplings.
- Place in a large greased baking dish about 11" x 15"; bake in moderate oven (375F.) for 30 minutes.
- While apples are baking, make syrup of water, sugar and fruit juice; simmer to dissolve sugar. Pour over apples; bake 10-20 minutes more, basting frequently, to give attractive glaze. A little food color may be added to syrup, if desired. Serve warm with cream. Makes 8 servings.
