Ingredients

Step 1: Dough

3 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup ice water

Step 2: Filling

1/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins

STEP 3

Hot Cider Sauce
1 cup sweet apple cider
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of butter
dash of salt
1 tablespoon of corn starch (mixed with water)

Directions

6 Servings

STEP 1

Cut ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add ice water one tablespoon at a time (this will prevent the dough from from clumping together). Then form the dough into a large ball and place in the fridge for one hour.

STEP 2

Mix all these ingredients in a seperate bowl and set aside. Take cold dough out of the fridge and place on a cutting board. Cut the dough into 6 equal pieces. Core your 6 apples and pour the sugar mixture into the center of the apple. Fold dough around the apple. Place the wrapped apples into a 9×13 ungreased pan. Bake for 30-35 min. at 375 F.

STEP 3

Drizzle the sauce over the apples and ENJOY!!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
