  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 7x11 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Cut in butter. Pour in milk and stir to form a dough. Turn out onto a well-floured surface and roll out. Cut into 6 - 6 inch squares.
  3. Place a whole apple in the center of each square. Fill the core with blueberries. Drizzle with maple syrup. Pull up corners of dough and pinch edges together to seal. Place dumplings in prepared pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Combine remaining maple syrup with enough water to pour over dumplings to a 1 inch depth in dish. Submerge remaining blueberries and apple peelings with dried orange peel in liquid.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, basting as necessary, until crisp and browned. Serve warm with sauce.

The crust is the best part. I would like it better with 1T of butter and 1tsp of sugar inside. The mixture of fruits and maple syrup is delicious! MsJNewell

Great recipe. Takes a little work, but worth it. My family didn't care for the orange peel, though. I would leave that out next time. This recipe has a lot of potential to be used with pears...

I didn’t use whole apples , I cut up pink lady apples , used a muffin pan instead, and put cinnamon,butter nutmeg, brown sugar, in dumplings and drizzle blueberry syrup. Delicious

Very good. I didn't have any berries, so I chopped up an almond caramel granola bar, and stuffed the core with that. Lol. I had to remove some of the liquid, because the bottom was getting a bit...

This recipe came out great! I used a variation of fillings along with the blueberries (walnuts & dried cherries); and I did not use the skin shavings. It called for additional flour for the d...
