This is my mom's recipe, and I'm happy to share it. The dumplings are out of this world, and they complement the tart cherries.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) pitted tart cherries, undrained
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Dash salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the cherries with juice, 3/4 cup sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, lemon zest, salt and remaining sugar. Stir in milk and butter just until moistened.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto simmering cherry mixture. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering).
