Osteopath John, loves this favourite simple classic fall time recipe. It's perfect for a cosy night in as the nights get colder. 

2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¼ cup shortening
1 cup less 2 tbsp milk
3 - 4 apples, peeled, halved and cored
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Brown Sugar Sauce
2 cups packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp  butter

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease baking sheet.

COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in shortening. Pour in milk; using hands, wooden spoon or stand mixer, knead into smooth dough. Turn dough out onto floured surface; divide into 6 to 8 pieces. Roll out each large enough to wrap around 1 apple half. Place 1 apple half on each piece of dough, cut side up.

2. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. Spoon sugar mixture into each apple hollow. Wet edges of the dough, pinch together to seal over apple.

BAKE in 350°F oven until apples are tender, about 30 minutes.


1. While dumplings are baking, in a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water, brown sugar and butter to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes.

2. Serve dumplings warm with Brown Sugar Sauce drizzled over top.
