  • Quebec Apple Dumplings

    Dec 11,2007

    1 Pie dough (double batch)
    1/4 c Cheddar cheese-grated
    12 Apples; medium- peeled &
    1/2 c Mincemeat
    1/4 c Rum
    3/4 c Sugar
    1/4 c Sugar; Brown
    1/4 c Cream
    Lemon rind; 1/2 lemon

    Preheat oven to 400F. Make enough pie enough to roll into 12 6″x6″ squares
    (about a double batch.) Sprinkle each square with 1 tsp grated cheddar.
    Peel and core apples and place one on each square. Fill the centre of each
    apple with 2 tsp (or 1 heaping tsp) of mincemeat, 1 tsp of rum, a dot of
    butter and 1 Tablespoon sugar. Bring diagonally opposite corners of dough
    over the apple to form ears at the top. Cover the ‘ears’ with aluminum
    foil. Mix the brown sugar, cream and grated lemon rind. Brush the
    dumplings with this mixture and bake 35 to 45 minutes in 400F oven. Remove
    foil, brush ears with cream mixture and return to oven till ‘ears’ are
    brown. Serve warm to plain cream or sweetened cream, flavoured with rum.

    Note from Anne MacLellan: Mme Benoit does not give total amounts for
    cheese, sugar, mincemeat and rum. I used Meal Master’s conversion to
    decimal and back to calculate the total amounts.

    To quote Mme. Benoit,”In Quebec these were baked in deep brown
    earthenware pudding dishes and served on a hot wooden board or tray
    surrounded by autumn leaves or boughs cut from the Christmas tree. It was
    a traditional in our family to serve these dumplings after we had finished
    decorating the Christmas tree.”
