From Grandma’s Country Kitchen — Apple Roly-Poly


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup shortening

1/4 cup margarine

2/3 cup sour cream


1/4 cup margarine, softened

1 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

6 cups apples, peeled, coarsely shredded (about 5 cups)


2 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup light cream

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until crumbly. Add sour cream and blend until a ball forms. Roll out on floured surface into a 15″ x 10″ rectangle. Spread with softened butter; sprinkle with remaining filling ingredients. Roll up jelly roll style starting with long side. Cut into 12 slices. Place slices cut side down in oblong pan.

For topping, combine water, brown sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from heat. Stir in cream. Carefully pour hot topping over dumplings.

Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until bubbly.

(Center will jiggle when dumplings are hot but will set as dumplings stand a few minutes.)

Serve warm.
