ABC Slump

ABC Slump

ABC Slump

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. -Becky Burch, Marceline, Missouri

Meet the Cook: For 50 years, I've turned to this beloved recipe to make candy to give away at Christmas. Of the many types I've tried, these pecan logs continue to be the most popular.
