For dough: mix flour, salt, and sugar. Mix water and vinegar together. Cut in shortening until shortening is the size of peas. Add enough water-vinegar mixture to make dough come together. Add 1 T. at a time. (May not need to use all of the liquid to make the dough come together.) Make two disks and roll out each into a 10-inch square (If apples are small, a smaller square of dough would be required.)
Mix ¼ c. sugar and cinnamon. Place apple in center of square. Fill cored apple with cinnamon sugar–a little over half full. Put 1 t. butter on top of each apple. Bring corners of dough together and pinch edges to seal. Make pastry cutout and place on top of apple dumpling, if desired. Place in 9-inch baking dish.
To make syrup, place all ingredients in a glass measuring cup and heat in microwave oven until hot, about 2-3 minutes. Pour syrup over dumplings. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Yields: 2 large apple dumplings
