My friend made this recipe the other day at our "old fashion comfort food fest" themed holiday party. she said her grandma used to make these. Quantity depends on how big you make your dumplings.

I made this morning for brunch. I messed up the sauce because I added all the ingredients and did not caramelize the brown sugar. To compensate, I reduced the sauce by about 1/4 by boiling for awhile. It was liquidy , but it firmed up very nicely once cooked. My family liked this and suggested that it tasted like pecan pie without the nuts. So I think next time I might add nuts to this or even apple slices. Thanks for the recipe.
