Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Amish Apple Dumplings

desserts, fruits

6 apples, peeled and cored
1 lemon juice
1/2 cup white sugar, approx
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 brown sugar
1 butter
2 pie pastry for 2 pies
1 sugar sauce:
2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon mace

Roll out pastry and cut into squares enough to cover apples completely. Peel and core apples. Roll in lemon juice. Then roll in white sugar and cinnamon combined. Place on pastry square. Stuff core cavity with brown sugar, butter, brown sugar in equal parts. (The amount depends on size of core cavity, just stuff full.) Fold pastry up around apple to completely enclose it. Place in pan. Prepare sugar sauce by mixing water, sugar, vanilla, butter, nutmeg, and mace and boiling for 1 minute. Let cool slightly. Pour over Apples. Bake in 375 F oven for 1 hour. Serve warm. Note: Apples may be frozen in pastry (before sugar sauce is added) if desired. Good dessert to make ahead if you have lots of apples around. Just let thaw when ready to use, and cover with sugar sauce and bake as usual. Source: Amish Cooking in Quilt Country show Typed by: Melissa Mierau, Martensville, SK
