TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

- 2. Drop by tablespoonfuls into six mounds onto simmering blackberry mixture. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering). Spoon into serving dishes. Serve with cream or whipped cream if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
