Blueberry Dumplings

A la mode translates to "topped with ice cream."  Isn't everything better topped with ice cream?  I love hot, bubbly desserts served with a big, cold scoop of ice cream.  Like my Homemade Peach Cobbler, this is one of our favorite "homey" desserts.  It's super easy too because it all goes in one pot.  I had this many years ago at a cooking class when I was still working and it's always a hit whenever I make it.  A big scoop of vanilla ice cream is a must!

Blueberry Dumplings A La Mode

Blueberry Dumplings

For the dumplings:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup whole milk

For the Blueberry Sauce:

2 packages frozen blueberries
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar

Vanilla ice cream for serving

Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.  Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter.  Stir in the milk to form a dough.  (It will be sticky.)  Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat combine the blueberries, water and sugar.  Stir well to combine.  Bring this mixture to a boil.  When it is boiling, drop the dumping mixture by tablespoonfuls into the pot.  Cover and reduce the heat to low and cook for 20 minutes.  Do not stir. When ready to serve, spoon mixture into bowls and top with ice cream.

Prep Time:  Approximately 20 minutes     Cook Time:  Approximately 20 minutes
