    2 cups granulated sugar
    2 cups water
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 cup shortening
    2/3 cup milk
    1/4 cup granulated sugar

    Sauce: In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, water, butter, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to boiling. Boil 5 minutes; set aside (should have about 2 cups sauce).

Pinch seam to seal. Cut into twelve 1-inch thick pieces. Place in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 50 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan 30 minutes before serving. Serves 12.
