Blackberry Dumplings


We have lots of blackberry bushes!  We usually just pick them off the bushes and eat them, however this time my husband wanted dumplings.  So the deal was, if you pick them then I'll make them.  I made our favorite dough, filled it with sweetened blackberries and topped it off with some vanilla ice cream.  A perfect summer treat!


Ingredients are as follows:

Dough:
2 1/2 C flour
1/4 C sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C butter, chilled and sliced
1/4 C milk, chilled
1 tsp. vanilla

Filling:
5-6 C fresh blackberries
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an oblong baking dish.


Place berries into a bowl and toss with sugar and vanilla; set aside.


Mix together the flour, sugar, and salt.  Add sliced butter.


Cut in the butter until you get a crumbly mix.


Add vanilla and milk.  Mix until a dough forms.


Divide dough into six pieces.  Roll one out into a circle (about 6-7 inches wide).


Place the circle of dough into a bowl. This will hold the dough upright for you.


Fill with 3/4 C of sweetened berries.


Crimp the top of the dough together.


Place into prepared pan. Repeat with remaining dough and berries.


Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.


Serve with some vanilla ice cream on top and enjoy!

  2. Those dumplings look so yummy! I'm jealous of your berry bushes! We have a few bushes but they aren't mature enough to give us much yet. Have a wonderful weekend, Lisa!

  6. Oh my word! I adore blackberries in any form and this looks & sounds delish! My former m-i-l used to make an excellent cobbler with them. I will definitely try these. I've had apple & peach dumplings and now wondering why no blackberries? :-) Thanks so much for sharing!

  38. We accept lots of blackberry bushes! We usually just aces them off the bushes and eat them, about this time my bedmate capital dumplings. So the accord was, if you aces them again I'll accomplish them.
