Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes Ingredients
1 ½ lbs. peeled and boiled potatoes
3 Tbsps. flour
1-1/2 Tbsps. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. salt
12 sugar cubes
3 Tbsps. butter
1/2 cup fine breadcrumbs
2 Tbsps. sugar Instructions
Force the potatoes through a ricer. Beat the flour, cream, butter, egg, and salt into the potatoes to create a smooth dough. Carefully remove the pit from the apricots by cutting a slit 2/3 around the circumference of the stone and then sliding it out from the fruit. Replace each stone with a sugar cube. Roll out the dough until it is ¼ inch thick. Wrap each apricot in dough to form a ball. Drop the dumplings into boiling salted water (4 at a time) and boil briskly for 10 minutes. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon into a warm dish. Melt the butter in a skillet and add the breadcrumbs, cooking until golden brown. Add the sugar to the breadcrumbs and sprinkle over the dumplings.
