I wonder if anyone knows anything about puffy apple dumplings. My grandmother
used to make them, enclosing slices of apple & some cinnamon & sugar in some
kind of dumpling dough, and dropping them into boiling water with a little
bit of milk. They were absolutely delicious and no one seems to know how to
make this dough. Every one I have attempted either breaks up or won't hold
the apples.
