Head to the local farmers market or produce section of your grocery store for the season's freshest berries to make this delicious, extremely easy-to-make dessert!
2 to 3 cups of fresh fruit (blackberries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
one package of crescent rolls (depending upon size of dish, you could use two pkgs, equaling 16 rolls)
one stick of butter
1 tsp vanilla extract (If using peaches, try 1/3 tsp almond extract)
2/3 cup of water
¾ cup of sugar
1/2 cup sugar (for cinnamon/ginger blend)
one teaspoon of cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
Mix together the 1/2 cup of sugar, cinnamon and ginger in a small bowl. Set aside.
Unroll each crescent roll triangle on a smooth surface, like a cutting board.
Put 3 or 4 berries (or a few more if using blueberries, as they're smaller) on the wide end of the triangle, then roll toward the pointed end. Close up any open spaces by pinching the dough to seal, then place in cooking-sprayed baking dish in a single layer.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then add the 3/4 cup sugar. Mix well with a whisk, then add water. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Pour mixture directly over the dumplings in the baking dish, then sprinkle the dumplings with a cinnamon-ginger-sugar mixture.
Bake for about 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
