Easy Fruit {Blackberry} Dumplings Dessert Recipe

Hello hello! I hope all of you had a great Fourth of July. We've actually had a tough couple of days around our household, as David's grandmother passed away Tuesday evening. She was a wonderful lady who taught us and all of our family so much about life and love. I feel really blessed to have been a small part of her wonderful life.

Last week, I shopped at our local farmers market and found some really great fresh fruits and vegetables. Among those were these delicious locally grown blackberries. While I'm perfectly content with eating them as-is, I thought it would be fun to whip up a special summer dessert with this scrumptious fresh fruit. So I went to a go-to easy, breezy family recipe... fruit dumplings!


-2 to 3 cups of fresh fruit (blackberries, peaches, apples, etc.) 
-one package of crescent rolls
-one stick of butter
-one cup of water
-one cup of sugar
-one teaspoon of cinnamon


Alright, folks. When I say these are easy... I promise, they are really easy!
1. Roll fruit up into crescent rolls. It's easier to add sliced fruit, like peaches or apples, but I had no problem with the blackberries. Just unroll each crescent roll triangle, spread out the fruit and then roll right back up!

You can also pinch together two crescent roll triangles so that you get larger pockets to hold the fruit.

2. Melt the butter + sugar. Mix in the water and then pour mixture over dumplings. This step honestly doesn't look too appetizing. Just have a little faith in me, these will turn out well! I also put a dash of cinnamon on top after I pour the liquid over the dumplings, just for an extra kick.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. Then take them out of the oven and breathe in deeply because these suckers smell goooood.

I promise you, the dumplings are best when they're eaten straight out of the oven. So crispy, warm and good. Especially when they're stuffed with fruit as good as these blackberries!

Top the dumplings off with some vanilla bean ice cream and you just might find yourself the happiest camper around : ) This is one of my favorite go-to dessert recipes, so enjoy!

What fun summer dishes have you whipped up lately?

  10. Hi. I just made these and they were yummy, but the bottom seemed too doughy. Should I have used a 9x13 pan; I used a smaller pan, therefore the dumplings were sitting in more liquid.

    Thanks for such a simple, delicious recipe. Just my kind!
