Blackberry Dumplings Recipe

Publisher Photo
As long as I can remember, my mother has been making Blackberry Dumplings. They finish cooking while you eat—and they really do make you hurry through Sunday dinner! It can be an everyday dessert, too, though. Try it with roast chicken, beef and ham. Sometimes, I'll make it in winter just to have a taste of summer. My mom is the best cook I know, but my husband's also taught me a lot. He's so imaginative in the kitchen! We have two sons—4 and 2—and we are expecting a third child in September.

MY REVIEW

Something missing in this recipe, water to boil berries in, am I correct?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 16, 2010

I didn't have any problems with this recipe, but none of us liked it very much.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2010

Add 1 1/2 cups of water to cook the berries and steam the dumplings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 24, 2010

I don't know if the recipe on here is wrong but there is nothing to boil in the first ingredients. All the sugar does is coat the blackberries and the dumplings didn't turn out either.
