Ingredients:  
2-1/4 cups sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
7 to 8 tablespoons ice water
6 medium sized tart, juicy apples
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
SYRUP:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup water

Directions:
Sift flour and salt directly into mixing bowl. Add most of shortening and cut it in with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture looks like "meal". Then add remaining shortening and cut it in pieces the size of giant peas. Sprinkle water lightly over mixture, blending it in with a fork until dough can be just pressed together into a ball. (If desired, divide dough into two or three parts to make it easier to handle.) Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut in 7 inch squares.
Pare and core the apples, and place an apple on each pastry square. Fill cavity of each apple with the sugar and cinnamon, mixed together. Dot with butter. Moisten points of pastry square. Bring opposite points up over the apple, over-lapping them. Seal well. Place about 2 inches apart in an 8" x 12" baking pan. Then chill thoroughly in refrigerator.
Make the syrup by mixing together in a saucepan the sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon, butter and water and boil for 3 mintues. Pour the hot syrup around the chilled dumplings in baking pan. Bake immediately for 5 to 7 minutes, until crust shows slight coloring, in a very hot oven (500). Then reduce temperature to a moderate oven (350) and bake about 30 to 35 minutes longer. Makes 6 dumplings. Serve warm with hot syrup, and with cream, too, if desired.
