Plum Dumplings

3 tb Butter or margarine
3 c Flour
2 c Cooked; mashed, sieved potatoes
1 ts Salt
2 Eggs; slightly beaten
Plums; washed and dried


Cut the butter into the flour until as fine as cornmeal. Add the mashed potatoes, eggs, and salt, mixing until smooth. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into 3 to 4-inch squares. Place a plum on each piece and carefully and completely surround with dough. Gently put a few at a time into boiling water, not allowing the water to boil too vigorously. Cook about 15 minutes. Check often while cooking.

These may be steamed instead, if desired.

Serve with melted butter, sugar and cinnamon, or even a little cottage cheese. Some people like them with buttered and browned bread crumbs.
