Roll plain pie crust as you would for pie, but a little larger. Chop up some apples, and cover this crust; add a layer of sugar, and sprinkle with cinnamon; then add a layer of raisins, and sprinkle with bits of citron, chopped fine. Roll all up; pinch the crust closely together at sides and ends; place in dripping pan with one-half a cup of butter, and one cup of sugar; pour enough boiling water over it to half cover the roll; put in oven and bake three hours; baste every half hour as you would turkey. When done, the roll will have a crust like taffy. Take out, and serve sliced thin. It is delicious.
