Grandma Hruska’s Fruit Dumplings

I have two recipes from Grandma for fruit dumplings.  I think I have used recipe #2, which is more complicated.  Both are served with cottage cheese, melted butter and cinnamon and sugar.  You can use any pitted fruit.  We have used plums, peaches and apricots.  All are good.

Recipe #1

3 Tablespoons Butter

4 Cups Flour

Cream to moisten

Mix together and wrap around whole fruit.  Drop in boiling water for about 10 minutes.

Recipe #2

Put to boil 2 cups milk, one tablespoon butter, ½ cup salt.  When it starts to boil, sift in as much flour as it will take (about three cups).  Mix constantly and cook about four minutes.  Let cool.

Beat 3 eggs in a mixmaster and gradually, piece by piece, add cooled dough.  Mix thoroughly and then finish kneading by hand.  Cut pieces of dough, flatten out, put in fruit and roll in your hands.  Boil 10 minutes after water comes to another boil.  Makes about ten medium size peach dumplings.
