1Project time may vary based on ovens used and time needed to prepare dough. For better results, you may want to first read the instructions provided in the Auntie Anne's At Home Baking Kit or watch the video provided above.
In a small bowl combine warm milk and contents of yeast packet (yeast packet is included in the Baking Kit). Allow this to sit for about 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl add dough mix and both sticks of softened butter. Cut butter into dry mix until small crumbles form.
Add milk/yeast mixture to dry ingredients and stir until a dough ball begins to form. Place dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes until dough becomes soft and smooth.
Cover dough with plastic wrap and let it rest for 15 minutes in a warm spot.
Divide dough into 6 equal portions and roll each portion into a small circle big enough to wrap around your apple (dough should be about 1/4 inch thick).
Place a peeled/cored apple into the center of each dough circle and sprinkle cinnamon sugar into the center of each apple. Wrap the dough around the apple sealing it completely inside the dough.
Place the dough wrapped apples into a 13 inch x 9 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray and pour the Warm Spiced Syrup over the dumplings (recipe for Warm Spiced Syrup follows).
Bake for 45 minutes or until tops are lightly golden brown.
3Warm Spiced Syrup:
In a small saucepan combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and water.
Over medium high heat on the stove bring all ingredients to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes as syrup thickens. Remove from stove and add 3 tablespoons of butter; stir until butter melts.
