Blueberry Dumplings

This has to be one of my all time favorite blueberry recipes. Just saying the words Blueberry Dumplings makes my mouth water. If you love desserts that are ooey, gooey and warm all over… drop what you are doing and make this right now! I mean it… scoot!
Just imagine the softest, plumpest dough balls that have soaked up the most delicious berry juice. This dish has so many great “Southern” qualities: fresh picked berries from the farm, homemade dumplin’s and you don’t even have to chew it! (Which I have to admit is true for most southern foods.) 
If you really want to put this dessert over the top, add a big ol’ glob of vanilla ice cream. I promise you will eat this until your teeth turn blue and your mouth hurts from smiling.

Blueberry Dumplings
from Tasty Kitchen

For the dumplings:
1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/2 cups butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cups milk

For the berries:
1 quart fresh blueberries
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 cups water

In a medium bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir it to make sure it is good and combined. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter and vanilla into the dry ingredients. Add milk to form dough. Set this beautiful dumpling dough aside.

In a large pot, dump in your washed berries, 1 1/4 cup of sugar, and water. Bring this to a boil. Drop dumplings by the spoonful into the hot boiling berries.

This is the most important step in making the dumplings! Cover the pot, reduce heat to low, and cook slowly for 20 minutes. Do not, I repeat do not, remove the lid before 20 minutes has passed, and do not stir the dumplings. They should be sitting at the top of the pot cooking.

Serve warm.
