Pinkie Winky Strawberry Dumplings...

Strawberry Dumplings

The legend of this recipe: This recipe was found in an old trunk
that came across the Oregon Trail in the 1800's. The pioneers used
any kind of wild berry, including wild strawberries. This recipe
has been cut down to this small amount from feeding about 120.

4 eggs
4 Tbsp. melted butter
4 tsp. baking powder
4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
12 Tbsp. flour

Combine to make stiff batter to hold shape.

4 cups strawberries
2 cups sugar

Mash berries with sugar. Bring to boil in a large pot with a tight
lid. Drop dumplings into hot liquid, reduce heat and
simmer, with lid on, for 15 minutes. Don't lift lid - don't peek!

Remove dumplings carefully to dessert dishes and spoon berries

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
