This jewel comes from my midwestern living magazine, oh so good. You can use fresh or frozen peaches.

I followed the recipe to a T and I am wondering if I did something wrong. The dumplings were doughy little bits that didn't soak up any of the juice and were dense and not too good. The peach mixture was good though and after removing the dough balls, we had that mix on icecream. I plan to make this again to see if I get a better outcome because I love the idea of this dish.
