German Cherry Dumplings

Boil a bunch of potatoes. Squish them through one of those gadgets
with holes in it. (A ricer)

Add flour to the potatoes (add more rather than less, too much
potato and the dumplings get too heavy). Add 1 or 2 eggs. Add
some salt. Knead the dough a bit and roll it into a long roll
about 2 inches thick.

Wash some cherries. Cut the roll into a bunch of 1 1/2 inch to 2
inch pieces. Put a cherry in each piece and form into a ball.

Put the Cherry dumplings into boiling water and wait until they
rise to the top.

Brown some butter (1/4 - 1/2 lb ?). Get some sugar. Put some
dumplings on your plate. Cut them in half or quarters with a fork.
Take the cherry pit out. Sprinkle some sugar on the dumplings,
then pour hot browned butter over the dumpling. The cherries should
have nice red juice coming out of them.The dough should be light
and springy. If you eat about 13 of these, you should feel satisfied.
For 4 people make 13 x 4 = 52 dumplings.

You can also use plums but I like the Cherry ones better because
they are juicier.
