When done peeling apples, roll out dough. Roll out the dough so it's large enough to get six 6"x6" squares.
the cored and peeled apple in the center of each square.
Pour sugar in the core of each apple. I fill it up to almost the top.
Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top of each apple.
Pull up the dough around the apple, pinching the sides to seal the purse of dough.
Place dumplings in baking dish and top with sauce from Step 1.
Place in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes.
