Headed to the Fair this Week

 The Ohio State Fair is going on right now, as well as several local county fairs in our area. This time of year is filled with these hometown celebrations and whether you love the animals, the midway or the people-watching, one thing we all love is the FOOD! This week, we're looking for your fair-food inspired recipes...corn dogs, funnel cakes, sausage & peppers and more.
So, tell us...
What are YOUR favorite recipes inspired by FAIR FOOD?
Share 'em all in today's Recipe Round-Up!

From our cookbook, Coming Home with Gooseberry Patch, this recipe tastes just like the ones you can enjoy at the fair!
First-Place Apple Dumplings
You’ll win rave reviews when you serve these to family & friends. Top servings with big scoops of cinnamon ice cream…so yummy! 
2 c. all-purpose flour
AppleDump1/2 t. salt
2/3 c. shortening
2 to 3 T. cold water
6 tart apples, cored
    and peeled

1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 t. cinnamon
Cinnamon Syrup:
2 c. water
1 c. sugar
4 t. butter
1/2 t. cinnamon
Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl; cut in shortening to a cornmeal consistency. Stir in water. Roll out dough on a floured surface; cut into 6 squares large enough to cover apples. Set an apple in the center of each square. Mix together sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Bring sides of dough together to cover apples; press to seal. Place seam-side down in a greased 13"x9" baking pan; set aside. To make the Cinnamon Syrup, combine last 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until sugar dissolves. Pour over dumplings; bake at 500 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees; bake for an additional 35 to 40 minutes, until golden and apples are tender. Makes 6 dumplings.
