Fruit Dumplings


Recipe 1


  • 1 can biscuits
  • 3 apples or can peaches
  • 1 c. sugar if you use apples, 1/2 cup sugar for peaches
  • 3/4 stick butter
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 7 – Up


Chop up the fruit. Roll out biscuits as thin as you can get them. Put fruit in center and pull up and twist. Put them in 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Heat sugar, butter and cinnamon and (one) 7-Up until it comes to boil. Pour over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Recipe 2:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Mix egg with butter and milk. Add salt. Sift flour on a board and add first mixture, kneading until smooth. Cut dough into small pieces and wrap evenly around the fruit (make sure to pre-pit your fruit!). Seal well all around. Drop dumplings in a large pan of boiling salted water and cook for about 8 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove from water immediately, sprinkle with melted butter and keep in a colander over hot water until ready to serve. Arrange on a platter, sprinkle with some more melted butter and sugar. Crumbled pot cheese, ground poppy seed or bread crumbs fried in butter can be used for topping.
