My college girlfriend's late mother fixed this for me while on spring break in FL many, many years ago. As it turns out this is the same recipe my grandmother used to fix cherry dumplings for me every summer (feel free to substitute cherries for blueberries). It looks horrible but tastes OH SOOOOO GOOD!!!!
