- 1 cup water

- Reduce heat to medium low and cover.
- Let this simmer until most of the liquid is gone.
- In a separate bowl, combine fruit, pecans, cinnamon and sugar. You may need more cinnamon and sugar for your taste, just eye ball it.
- Microwave fruit mixture just until warm.
- Spoon a few dumplings into a bowl and top with warm fruit mixture.
- You can also add a scoop of ice cream if you'd like!
I gave this recipe 2 stars. I made this for Spring 2011 PAC. I'm am sorry but this just didn't turn out for me. The cinnamon was just to overpowering. I did make a few minor changes to the recipe. First for the dumplings. When I made these I added a bit more milk to make them more like a dumpling batter I watched my gram make. When I put them in the pot to cook I did towards the end of cooking added more water as the dumplings were still doughy and I tried to flip them to help them cook but that didn't help. Once I added the water this worked like a charm. I did also make my dumplings in a pot instead of a saucepan to give them more room to cook. As for the water to cook them in I did not caramlize my sugar. I did add some water and cooked this until a syrup developed. Followed the rest of the recipe except by accident added 1 tbl. more vanilla. Didn't affect the taste of the dumplings. As for the fruit I used canned peach halves which I just sliced thin like clings. I left out the pecans as my family doesn't like pecans much. I did use Splenda in place of the sugar. After stirring this mixture up I had a goupy mess. This was awful. I added water to try to thin this out which it did but the cinnamon taste was so overwhelming. Myself I love cinnamon and I had to throw this right out. Overall I gave this recipe 2 stars because I liked the idea of the recipe and with tweaking I think this could be an awesome recipe. Plus the dumplings were super good. Overall I may try this again but with adjustments. Thanks christine
