I love my friends and I value community, so when we’re able to get together, it brings great delight to my soul.
Shortly after moving into our new place, Kyle and I were able to host our first dinner party. We invited a small handful of friends and enjoyed some delicious food and great conversation. It was a special evening.
Our time began out on the patio, where we enjoyed mixed cheeses and fresh french baguette. I served them on our new cheese board with glass dome. The board was one wedding gift I was so excited to receive. I couldn’t wait to use it, and was glad I had the opportunity to do so.
The blueberry slump was everyone’s favorite! It’s mine too.
2 c flour
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 t baking powder
1 1/2 T sugar
1/2 c Crisco
1/2 c milk
2 c blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Mix dry ingredients, then mix in Crisco and milk to form dough for crust. Roll dough out into large square. Place in bottom of buttered 9in by 9in baking dish, with enough dough hanging over the sides to fold over. Fill with blueberries and fold dough over so that it’s in the shape of a pocket, with small opening in center. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes.
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 c melted butter
3/4 c sugar
Melt butter, add cinnamon and sugar. After 25 minutes, remove dumpling from oven and pour mixture in the center opening. Turn oven off and return to cook for 15 minutes. Serve with fresh whip cream or vanilla ice cream over top.
The recipe was given to me by an old friend. I only had to try it once, and I was hooked! It’s super easy to make, the crust just melts in your mouth and the filling is full of flavor. Enjoy!
