1/2 c sugar

Directions:
Sift flour and salt into mixing bowl. Add most of shortening and cut it in with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture looks like "meal." Then add remaining shortening and cut it in pieces like 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. Roll out dough 1/8 in. thick on a lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut in 7 inch squares.

Peel 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, overlapping them. Seal well. Place about 2 inches apart in an 8x12 inch 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 minutes. 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 350 and bake about 30 to 35 minutes longer.
