11 Mar Welcome Spring with Delicious Maple Dumplings!
Maple Dumplings are tiny biscuits simmered and cooked in maple syrup. Best served warm with ice cream.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup Ski’s Maple Syrup
- 1/2 cup water
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using your fingers or a fork, work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Add the milk and vanilla, stirring until the dough is smooth.
In a large, wide saucepan or deep skillet, combine the Ski’s Maple Syrup and water and bring to a boil. Using two spoons, drop 1-2 Tbsp spoonfulls of the batter in to the boiling syrup mixture. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
*Do be careful here. Allow to cool slightly before tasting. Hot syrup can burn your lips!
Serve warm dumplings over a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzled with some of the maple sauce from the pan.
