My Grandmother made these dumplings every spring while she and my Grandfather made maple syrup. She also made us maple syrup candy.
1 1/2 C flour
3/4 t salt
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
3/4 C milk
3 T butter frozen cubed
2 C maple syrup
1 C water
Mix dry ingredients together in medium bowl. Blend in butter until pea shaped with pastry knife. Stir in milk.
Add maple syrup and water to large sauce pan or medium sized Dutch oven and bring to boil. Drop in tablespoons of dough in boiling syrup. Reduce heat to simmer and cook covered for 15 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
Very decadent dessert. We always enjoyed this at my Grandmothe’s house when they tapped their maple trees and boiled down the sap. At same time she would make us maple syrup candy. 😊😊
