Peach Dumplings

This recipe, from my husband's Great-Grandmother who was from the Czech Republic, is a delicious meal that satisfies like a dinner and desert in one!

Dissolve 1 pkg dry yeast in 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 tsp sugar
Stir in 2 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp shortening, 1 beaten egg and add 1/2 cup sifted flour. Stir until blended.

Let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk (about 1/2 hour).
Knead a little flour in and flatten on counter.
Cut into pieces, wrap all around fresh peaches.
Put into boiling water for 10-15 minutes depending on size of peach.

Great topped with cottage cheese and/or melted butter.

Makes 4-5 dumplings.

I can't believe your posting family secrets! My great-grandmother wrestled that out under the cover of the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia... ok, maybe not. =)
