Print this Recipe    Marillenknodel (Austrian apricot dumplings)

1 kg potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
300 g flour
1 kg fresh apricots
small cubes of sugar
100 g plain bread crumbs
1 small pat of butter
50 g sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Boil potatoes in their jackets and then peel. Mash potatoes in a
large bowl, mixing in salt and flour to make a potato dough.

Wash apricots and remove pits. Place a small cube of sugar where
the pit should be.

With your hands, form a pattie of dough not much more than a cm.
thick which can encircle the apricot. Place the apricot inside the
dough and seal.

Have a large pot of boiling, slightly salted water ready. When
all the dumplings are formed, place them into the boiling water
and cook for 10 minutes, stirring as needed.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat and then
stir in breadcrumbs. Allow to brown slightly for two minutes, then
add sugar and cinnamon and stir. Turn heat to very low and keep
warm until dumplings are ready.

When dumplings are cooked, remove from water and roll in pan of
breadcrumbs. Serve warm. (Be careful, the fruit can be very hot!)

Grandma's Apricot Dumplings, July 3, 2004 - 12:26 AM
Reviewer: Nichole from Sixes, OR U.S.
I haven't had THIS exact recipe, but one very similar. My grandmother learned to make this from her mother back when she was a child in Austria. Today, all of her children and us grandchildren always BEG her to make it during the summer. I recently acquired the recipe from her and will soon be trying it out myself. I can't wait to see the results!
