Tried this recipe tonight with no alterations. The flavor is superb and the ice cream is necessary. However, cannot give more stars because the dumplings themselves seem lacking. Mine were too dry to even hold together and shape. When the syrup was added, they kind of disintegrated into a mush. Very difficult to turn & no extra syrup to spoon over. Is something missing from the dumpling dough? Would like to try again and re-rate.
