Blueberry Cobbler

Randy came home Fri evening telling me about these: Blueberry Dumplings that a lady had told him about at the office and said that these are love at first bite. Will be making these this week, but since they sounded so interesting, had to go ahead and post the recipe. The dumplings are like you would have with chicken and dumplings, except they are boiled in the fruit juice.

Dumplings

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

6-8 tablespoons milk

Mix together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in the shortening with a pastry cutter or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently mix in milk until it becomes a very soft dough

Stewed Blueberries

2 cups blueberries

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup sugar

Heavy cream

Bring the blueberries, water and sugar to a boil in a wide pan.

Divide the dough into about five dumplings and drop on top of the blueberries. Lower heat to a simmer and cover the pan tightly. Steam for 12 minutes. Serve warm, drizzled with cold heavy cream
