Tips for serving fruit dumplings

  • If you don’t want to fill the dumplings, you can make smaller unfilled dumplings from the dough. You then serve the fruit sauce over it. We create this by boiling fruit with sugar.
  • Dumplings can also be served topped with pudding or with a scoop of ice cream.
  • They are also great sprinkled with chopped almonds.
  • Dumplings can be topped with fruit sauces , thin sweetened cottage cheese or yogurt.
  • If we want to grease them, then only with melted butter.
