During the busy holiday season, you'll want to stock your pantry with the ingredients for this fast and festive dessert from Gloria Aegerter. "This trifle is easy to make," reports the Summerfield, Florida cook. "It looks so pretty in a glass bowl-people will think you fussed."
The "ABC" in this recipe's name comes from the apple, blueberries and cranberries it uses. The other part refers to the way the dumplings "slump" during cooking - presumably the sound made by the fruit as it bubbles on the stove.
I've take my slump to work, picnics and church carry-ins. No matter where, the result is the same...all that I ever bring home is the empty dish.

"These cool and lightly sweet parfaits put a new twist on berries and cream," says Adeline Piscitelli of Sayreville, New Jersey. "My guests marvel at the simple ingredients that go into this elegant dessert."
These pies have just two ingredients in the filling, so they're a snap to assemble. yet they look and taste like you fussed. Topped with fresh blueberries and raspberries, they're irresistible.—Dawn Fagerstrom, Warren, Minnesota
MY FAMILY loves fresh blueberries just about any way, but this loaf cake is a favorite at breakfast, as a delicious snack or quick dessert.
We always look forward to summer, when fresh blueberries appear in the market.
