Apple Puffs


2 c. sugar                                                            1 tsp salt

2/3 c, water                                                        2 T. sugar

3 c. flour                                                              1/2 c. shortening

4 tsp. baking powder                                        1 1/2 c. milk

Line a 13 x 9-inch pan with sliced apples. Combine the sugar and water, boil for 5 minutes; pour over apples. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, shortening and milk; put on top of apples. Melt 4 tablespoons butter and pour over dough. Sprinkle top with 4 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

  • Mandy’s Hints: The above recipe is written just as it appears in the book. You’ll notice it never lists apples as an “ingredient” but then asks that you line a pan with sliced apples. 😉 I used 3 apples, but you could definitely do more, based on how much apple you want in this.
  • I used butter, as usual, in place of shortening.
  • I also sprinkled some cinnamon on the apples, before putting the dough mixture on top of them.
  • UPDATE: I just realized, thanks to a reader, that this recipe doesn’t have the temp or baking time. AND I totally forgot to add how I baked it – I baked at 375 degrees for roughly 45 minutes. I kept an eye on it and just took it out when the dough looked like it was baked through. 🙂 Sorry about that!
