Easy As Pie Blackberry Dumplings with Caramel Sauce

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We did and we ate so much good food and will be eating some delicious leftovers for a few days. One of the best desserts was the Blackberry Dumplings I made in the crockpot (they can be made in the oven too). This recipe is similar to the Blackberry Pig in a Poke recipe but so much easier!

The caramel sauce and nutmeg are optional but they make it so much better. I think this would go nicely with some vanilla ice cream on the side too! You could also experiment with other fruits/berries as well as maybe changing the soda to Sprite or Mountain Dew. Add in your favorite nuts, raisins, or maybe some white chocolate chips too… whatever you and your family like. Just have fun and enjoy experimenting as I know we do here.

Easy As Pie Blackberry Dumplings with Caramel Sauce

Ingredients:

Dumplings:

  • 2-3 cans of crescent rolls
  • 2-3 c. blackberries
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 12 oz ginger ale, Sprite, or Mountain Dew

Caramel Sauce:

  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • a bit of ground nutmeg (freshly ground is best)

Directions:

Crock Pot Directions:

Spray your crockpot with nonstick spray.

Place the berries in a small bowl and toss with the sugar. Let rest for about 10 minutes or so.

Place 2-3 berries in each crescent roll and roll up making sure to pinch the sides closed.

Place the ‘dumplings’ at the bottom of the crockpot. I did one layer to make sure they all got finished.

If you have any leftover berries you can mash them up and add them to the soda and then pour this over the dumplings.

Cook on high 3-4 hours… they will smell amazing!

When ready to serve place the butter and brown sugar in a small bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes until bubbly. Stir well.

Drizzle the sauce over the individual servings and then sprinkle with a bit of nutmeg, if desired. Enjoy!

Oven Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray.

Place the berries in a small bowl and toss with the sugar. Let rest for about 10 minutes or so.

Place 2-3 berries in each crescent roll and roll up making sure to pinch the sides closed.

Place the ‘dumplings’ in the greased pan.

If you have any leftover berries you can mash them up and add them to the soda and then pour this over the dumplings.

Bake 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

When ready to serve place the butter and brown sugar in a small bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes until bubbly. Stir well.

Drizzle the sauce over the individual servings and then sprinkle with a bit of nutmeg, if desired. Enjoy!
