A few years ago I was given this recipe. It is one of our family favorites. Hope you like it as much as we do. This is the first time I have submitted a recipe and I have been reading this wonderful newsletter since 1996. I never had the courage to submit a recipe before. I thought you always had enough recipes and my recipe wouldn't really count. I now know that everyone needs to share their best recipes. Thank you for having the newsletter.

Linda's Apple Dumpling Dessert Recipe

4 cup All-purpose flour
2 tsp Salt
1 1/3 cup Shortening
8 tbl Cold water, (up to 9)

8 cup Tart apples, chopped/peeled
1/4 cup Sugar
3/4 tsp Ground cinnamon

2 cup Water
1 cup Packed brown sugar
Whipped topping OR vanilla ice cream, optional
Mint leaves, optional

In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork until dough can be formed into a ball. Divide dough into four parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll one part to fit the bottom of an ungreased 13x9x2" baking dish. Place in dish; top with a third of the apple. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle a third over apples. Repeat layers of pastry, apples and cinnamon-sugar twice. Roll out remaining dough to fit top of dish and place on top. Using a sharp knife, cut 2 inch slits through all layers at once.

For syrup bring water and sugar to a boil. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over top crust. Bake at 400 F. for 35-40 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream if desired. Garnish with mint if desired.
Makes 12 servings.
