My family really enjoyed this recipe. I used frozen blackberries and lemon juice with some lemon zest (didn't have any extract). I baked it at 400* but checked it at 30 minutes and it was done perfectly! Thanks for sharing a true keeper.

The blackberry sauce was wonderful - just enough sweet. I think I overmixed the dumplings a bit, and they browned a bit too much for our tastes. Next time I'll cook it at 350 so they don't brown as much.
