This is my favorite Paula Dean recipe, I watch here prepare it on her show a few years ago and I have been making it ever since. I have also use mixed berries instead of blueberries. Serve a warm bowl of blueberry dumplings with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a cold winter night. I love it when the ice cream melts into the warm blueberries. I know this will become a favorite of yours to.
