Baked Strawberry Dumpling Recipe



I usually never have room for dessert after a  big meal no less trying to spend more time in the kitchen baking. These were so fast to throw together and full proof delicious!  You won't believe how simple these are. 




 Baked Strawberry Dumpling Recipe

Refrigerator buttermilk biscuits or use crescent rolls (10 or more)
Butter
Sugar
Cinnamon
10 Hulled and Cleaned Strawberries or use
 (sliced banana,  wedges of pear, apple,  pitted cherries, sliced peaches and 1 tablespoon of blueberries all work great in the center proceed with same directions)
Garnish vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Unroll the biscuits. Place a whole piece of the fruit of choice in the center and roll up. Seam down and place in a greased cupcake tin.

Melt 1/2 stick of butter, 1/4  cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon. You may need to make more depending on how many rolls you make. I made just 10.
Drizzle over each fruit rolled biscuit.
Bake at 375 until golden brown. Around 12 to 15 minutes. Don't overcook them. 
Place on a plate and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Italian Style Jambalaya Recipe


A very delicious casserole and perfect for a picnic or gathering. Something for everyone. You can add as much as you like all in one big pan and this can serve a few or many people depending on how much you would like to make. I left out the shrimp this time because we have some picky eaters. You can add some large shrimp to this for your seafood lovers.
