Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 14

1 Cup(s) Water, boiling
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
2 Tablespoon(s) Shortening, vegetable or fat
1 Yeast, cake
1 Tablespoon(s) Water, lukewarm
1 Egg, well beaten
4 Cup(s) Flour, sifted all-purpose
7 Apples, medium tart
1/4 Cup(s) Raisins, seedless
1/4 Cup(s) Nut meats, chopped
1/2 Cup(s) Jelly, any desired
Pour the boiling water over the salt, 1 tablespoon of sugar and
shortening. When it is lukewarm, add the yeast which has been
dissolved in the 2 tablespoons of lukewarm water. Add the egg and 1
1/2 cups of the flour. Let this batter rise at 85F until double in
bulk, then add the remaining flour. Knead until smooth. Let rise again
for 1 hour. Divide the dough into 14 parts. Roll out each part until
1/2" thick. Peel, core, and cut apples in half. Place a half, cut
side up, on each piece of dough. Combine the remaining ingredients and
fill the cores with the mixture. Press the dough firmly together over
the apples and invert on a dull, greased, cookie tin. Brush with
melted shortening, and sprinkle with a little sugar and ground
cinnamon. Let rise for 1 hour. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes, until a
rich brown. Serve hot. Allow 1 or 2 for each portion. From Gemini's
