An alternative way of making these when you don't want to use the stove top or oven. Watch times of cooking....I used a 1200wt Microwave.

MMM Good. The sauce reminds me of my grandma's apple dumpling sauce. I think the sauce would be good on ice cream without dumplings!

Easy to make and the boyfiend gobbled his up and licked the bowl clean, but it was too sweet for me. I should have read Jewelies review and made them smaller.

So easy to make. I prepared the 'separate' dumplings and sauce mix before dinner then all I had to do was put it into the microwave to cook. My microwave is only about a 750watt so I used a wide bowl and made the dumplings alot smaller. Amazing how these dumplings "grow" even when you put them into the hot sauce! Ended up cooking about 10 minutes (checking at 2 min intervals after the 6 min). Thanks Jen, a keep for us :)
