  1. Creating the pie dough:.

  2. Blend flour, salt, and shortening together using a pastry cutter until the mixture is about the texture of corn meal.

  3. Add 1/2 cup of ice cold water and mix the dough (I find using my hands for this is easiest). If dough is too dry, add a bit more water but sparingly.

  4. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into eight squares.

  5. Filling the dumplings:.

  6. Place one apple on a square of pie dough. Fill the apple with sugar, sprinkle with cinnamon, and dot with butter.

  7. Bring corners of pie dough to top of apple and pinch shut.

  8. Place finished dumplings in a 9x13 greased pan.

  9. Syrup:.

  10. Bring to boil sugar, water, and butter in a sauce pan. Boil for two minutes.

  11. Pour syrup mixture around the dumplings.

  12. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Baste the dumplings with the syrup from the pan every 5 to 7 minutes.
