Apple dumplings

In addition to making the delicious juice from the apples I´m about to pick this coming weekend, I have to save some of them to make these wonderful apple dumplings. The recipe is one out of seven we photographed for a feature in the Norwegian magazine, Maison Mat og Vin, which is to be found in the stores now.

Apple dumplings with spiced sauce

You need:

350 g (1 1/2 cups) of sugar
4.75 dl (2 cups) water
 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, divided 
50 g (1/4 cup) butter 
150 g (2/3 cup) sugar 
8 medium apples, peeled and cored
 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut into cubes

You do:

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 350 g (1 1/2 cups) sugar, water, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. 

Remove saucepan from heat, and stir in butter. Set aside

Combine 150 g (2/3 cup) sugar, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Roll pie crust into 8, 8-inch circles. Place 1 apple in center of each circle. Sprinkle each evenly with sugar mixture and dot with 3 tablespoons butter.

Fold dough over apples, pinching to seal. Place in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish and drizzle with syrup. Bake at 190 degrees C (375°F) for 40 to 45 minutes.
