I got this from very sweet lady, they are wonderful. You can use fresh peaches or can peaches to make this also, I just chopped up the peaches in to small pieces and I omit the nutmeg and cinnamon in the sauce and the cinnamon in the filling but you don't have to. I think you could substitute and use almost any fruit. Blackberries sound yummy!!!!!

Marvelous! You're right, lots of different fruits will work in these dumplings...our favorite is chopped rhubarb! I think the syrup and the flour in the dough work some magic in the oven. It works with apples wrapped in the dough, too. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe!

I have been looking for this recipe for some time everytime I searched for apple dumplings, recipes for apples wrapped in dough would come up. I didn't know what else to call them cuz that is what my aunt called them many years ago. We also sprinkled raisins and nuts over the dough along with the apples and yes it is the hot water mixture you pour over the rolls that makes this recipe incredible
