Apple dumplings : george dunlop leslie

Paintings name :  Apple dumplings


I sit here peeling the apples
My mind in a whirl
What shall I make them into
I am thinking as the peel twirls

I am  pretty good at pastry
Shortcrust I think It must be
Must check if I have the cloves
To make a dumpling so very tasty

So I mix the flour with the butter
Til like breadcrumbs so very fine
Add drops of water, to bind the latter
Roll and cut to cover apples,  divine

Cook them in the oven
Til golden brown and smelling so unreal
Make thick custard to serve with them
Can taste them, think just one I might steal.

The picture tells the story
Of the maidens thoughts at work
Of the pleasure that cooking has for her
This is one job she wont shirk.
