Stuffed Apple Dumplings
|Short crust pastry||8 Ounce|
|Sugar||1 As Required (for sprinkling)|
Peel the apples and core.
Fill the center with caster sugar.
Roll the pastry 1/8th" thick and cut 6 circles large enough to cover the apples.
Put an apple in each and work the dough over the apple, pressing the edges, slightly moisten- ed, together.
Brush with cold water and sprinkle with caster sugar, or paint with a little milk.
Bake in a moderately hot oven till the apples are tender and the pastry crisp.
