About this recipe: A great way of making use of blackberries when in-season. Dumplings are simmered in a bubbling cinnamon-spiced blackberry compote. Enjoy for dessert.
My grandmother made these for me when I was just a pup. When I went into the Army, she'd make them for me special when I was home on leave. That's been almost 50 years ago and I still can taste her dumpling when I close my eyes. Juanita's recipe is as close to my grandmother's as I've had in years. Thanks Juanita. They're fabulous. - 03 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I didn't have blackberries, so I used frozen blueberries and because I like thicker sauces, I also added some cornstarch, but otherwise everything else I left the same. We loved it, but it was a bit too sweet, so next time I make it, I will add less sugar. Thank-you Charlo and Charlo's Mom for the great recipe!! - 30 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make this every summer we have fresh blackberries but you can also use frozen. To save time I make the recipe for dumplings on the Bisquick box. Much faster and tastes very good. Try it served with vanilla ice cream. It's a great treat. - 30 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
