What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, place raisins and cranberries, cover with warm water, and set aside for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut margarine into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add soymilk and stir well to form a soft dough.

2. On a lightly-floured surface, roll out dough to form an 18x12-inch rectangle, and cut into 6 squares. Drain raisin mixture, add chopped walnuts and maple sugar, and stir to combine.

3. To assemble dumplings, place an apple in the center of a square of dough. Fill center of apple with some of the raisin mixture, sprinkle a little cinnamon over apple, and fold up each corner of dough, pinching top and edges to seal. Carefully transfer to baking dish. Repeat procedure for remaining apples, filling, and dough.

4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle maple syrup (heated if desired) over each dumpling before serving.
