    Wow, my mom made these every summer with plums from the tree in our backyard. She grew up in Croatia, but the recipe is the same.

    I make these every fall when the italian plums are in season. These are a meal in itself. I eat mine topped with sour cream and sugar.

    I love the dough recipe. Grandma Plaza would most definitely approve. This sounds absolutely awesome and it will be on our Christmas Eve dinner table for sure. Dad#2 always gets his favorites on Christmas Eve, Sauerkraut soup, pierogis, kielbasa, beet and egg salad, cucumbers in sour cream and now this year he will have plum dumplings!!!! Thank you so much honey.
