In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoons salt
Mix in the butter, then add in the milk and mix just until a soft dough forms. 2/3 cup salted butter, 1/2 cup 2% milk
Divide the dough into 6 balls.
Assemble the dumplings:
Roll out each ball of dough on a floured surface.
Place an apple in the center of each piece of dough. 6 apples
Fold the dough around the apple and press it together to form a ball.
Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
Place the dumplings in the prepared pan.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Make the sauce:
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the brown sugar, water, butter and cinnamon. Heat it just until it barely starts boiling, stirring often. 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups water, 1/4 cup salted butter, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pour this mixture over the dumplings.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are soft and the dough is golden brown. You can baste the dumplings with the syrup several times during baking if you'd like.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
