Good things do not always have to be complicated.
Especially in the time before Christmas, when we find ourselves under stress in the procurement of gifts, we long for something simple. So if you are looking for something uncomplicated and delicious at the same time, these plum dumplings are just the thing for you!
Such traditional and simple recipes were often brought to America by European settlers. There they were partly modified, as they found access to new fruits, which were not very popular in the Old World until then.
We wish you bon appétit!
