Berry Dumplings


1 quart of your favorite berries
1 quart of water
1/2 stick of butter
3/4 cup of sugar

Put the berries and water into a big pot and cook over medium heat until the berries are done. Stir in the sugar and butter.

Mix 2 cups of self-rising flour and 6 tablespoons of shortening with a fork and add 2/3 cups of milk. Mix to form a dough. Drop by tablespoonfuls into the boiling berry mixture. After all of the dumplings have been dropped into the berries, cover the pot and reduce the heat to low and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes. Be sure the berry mixture is boiling and do not stir the dumplings or they will stick together. This is wonderful seved with vanilla ice cream.
