Well, the NM State Fair is long gone, and The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta came & went, so now it’s officially my ultimate favorite time of the year..FALL! That means I can start going completely Pumpkin Cah-razzy! Like Candles, Pies, Soups, Coffees, Cocoas, Cupcakes, Car Fresheners….and yes, Face Scrub (don’t ask)..haha! I was a patient girl and waited for it to be official, and now that it is all bets are off when it comes to anything Pumpkin! ;)
But nothing compares to a comforting, plump & tender, ooey-gooey Dumpling dripping in Fall flavors..I mean nothing! Everyone needs to experience these soft, tender doughy Pumpkin Pie Spiced Pillows totally dripping in Ice Cream, at least once!
These heavenly Dumplings melt in your mouth with all of those unbelievably sweet & slightly spicy Pumpkin Pie flavors, that just scream Fall with each warm and succulent bite! And So super simple! Change up your typical Pumpkin Pie and serve up a nice warm bowl of these Dumplings with a big cold scoop of Ice Cream for an unforgettable Fall/Winter dessert! You can even turn your dessert into an adult Hot Toddy simply by adding some Bourbon into the simmering Caramel sauce..G’nite Kids!
They couldn’t be easier, you’ll LOVE them!
What you’ll need:
1 tube of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits (each biscuit makes 4 plump dumplings, you may not need the whole tube!)
1 jar of Caramel Sauce (about 1 cup)
2 Cups water
2 tbsp. (or more) of Bourbon..OPTIONAL!
1/2 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp. Nutmeg
Ice Cream for topping
Cut each Biscuit into 4 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball, set aside…
In a medium pot stir & simmer the Caramel Sauce, Water & optional Bourbon…
Drop a few dumplings at a time into the simmering Caramel sauce, making sure that each side gets evenly coated & plump. They will be firm when they’re done..takes about 3-5 minutes.
Add the Graham Cracker Crumbs, Pumpkin Pie Spice and Nutmeg into a shallow bowl. When the dumplings are plump and tender toss each one into the Crumb mixture…coating them evenly.
Serve them warm with a scoop of Ice Cream and a drizzle of the reduced Caramel Sauce! ~Enjoy!
