This was one of the first recipes we ever posted on the Treehouse. This week we added a special holiday ingredient that we think is an improvement on the original recipe.
Butterscotch Dumplings (from Food that Really Schmecks, by Edna Staebler)
(Edna calls this recipe 20-Minute Dessert.)
Sauce: 1 cup brown sugar, 2 cups boiling water, 2 tbsp. butter or margarine. Stir this all together in a large pot till the sugar has dissolved; simmer while you mix the dumplings. You can also use leftover homemade pancake syrup, thinned with water if necessary. Holiday addition: add a cupful of frozen cranberries while you're bringing it to a boil.
Dumplings: 1/3 cup sugar, ½ tsp. salt, 1 tbsp. butter, 1 ½ cups flour, 1 tbsp. baking powder, about ½ cup milk. Cream the sugar, salt and butter; add flour mixed with baking powder alternately with enough milk to make a stiff batter. Drop by tablespoonfuls into the boiling sauce; cover and let boil gently (do NOT take the lid off) for about 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla yogurt, milk, or anything else you like.
