Blueberry N Dumplings

Sharon Raasch, Imperial, Neb.

1-1/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. Sugar, divided

3 Tbsp. All-Purpose Flour

2 t. Lemon Rind, grated

2 (16 oz) pkg. Frozen Blueberries

1-1/2 c. Biscuit Mix

3 Tbsp. Butter

1 (8 oz) container Sour Cream

In a 3-quart saucepan, stir together 1-1/4 cups sugar, flour and lemon rind until blended. Stir in blueberries. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high, and bring mixture to a boil, stirring often. Cook about 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring often. Meanwhile, combine biscuit mix and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 forks until crumbly. Add sour cream, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened and a soft dough forms. Pour hot blueberry filling into a 5-quart round slow cooker. Carefully drop dough in 6 large spoonfuls on top of filling. Cover and cook on low setting 3 hours, or until dumplings are golden.

* Remove slow-cooker lid carefully to prevent condensation from dripping onto dumplings and making them soggy. Remember that some slow cookers have hot spots. To ensure that the dumplings become an even golden color, without removing the lid, rotate the insert a half turn about halfway through cooking.
