center of each pastry square. Fill with mixture of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. 3) Dot each with teaspoon of butter. Bring points of pastry up over apple and overlap. Place in a baking pan separated slightly and pour one cup of the hot syrup mixture around dumplings. Bake at 425o for 45 min. Just before serving pour rest of warm syrup over dumplings and serve with the ice cream. Variation: Peach Dumplings: use 3 large peaches, peeled and pitted (in place of apples) Put peach half on center of each square and proceed as for apple dumplings above.
