Rhubarb Dumplings Recipe

I'm a homemaker—with two children, 4 and 1—who likes to try new recipes. When I served these at a recent family gathering, I got lots of compliments!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • SAUCE:
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • DOUGH:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • FILLING:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Stir in water; add butter. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and, if desired, enough food coloring to tint sauce a deep pink; set aside.
  • 2. For dough, in a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and mix quickly. Do not. Gather dough into a ball and roll out on a floured surface into a 12-in. x 9-in. x rectangle. Spread with softened butter; arrange rhubarb on top.
  • 3. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rhubarb. Roll up from the long side and place on a cutting board, seam side down. Cut roll into 12 slices. Arrange slices cut side up in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Pour sauce over. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 12 servings.
