DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the berries, sugar, orange juice, and butter in a nonreactive, heavy-bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  • Cook until the berries give off their juices, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the dissolved cornstarch and return to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Meanwhile, make the dumplings.
  • Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the butter, and using a pastry blender or a large fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture looks crumbly with a few pea-sized pieces of butter.
  • Mix the milk and vanilla in a measuring cup and stir into the flour mixture.
  • Drop the dough by heaping teaspoons into the simmering berries to make 16 dumplings.
  • Cover the saucepan and simmer until the dumplings are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let stand, with the lid ajar, to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • Serve the berries warm in individual bowls, each serving topped with 2 dumplings and a scoop of ice cream.
