Savory dumplings are dough mounds (small or large) that are usually dropped into a liquid mixture, such as soup or stew, and boiled or steamed until done. Some dumplings are stuffed with meat or cheese mixtures. Dessert dumplings usually have a fruit mixture covered in a sweet pastry dough and baked then served with a sauce. Some sweet dumplings are poached in a sweet sauce and served with cream.
