Yield: 8 servings
Prep: 25 minutes
Bake: 35 minutes

Ingredients
1 tube (16 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough
2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb, divided
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Mrs. Wages® Spiced Apple Mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup water
1 1/4 tsp rum extract
Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 pint strawberries, quartered
3/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Separate biscuits.  On a work surface, gently flatten each biscuit to a 3-in circle.  Spoon about 3 Tbsp of rhubarb onto the center of each biscuit. Wrap dough around rhubarb, pinching tightly to seal.  Set aside remaining rhubarb.  Place dumplings seam side down in an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the sugars, Mrs. Wages® Spiced Apple Mix, butter, water and rum extract.  Pour over the top of dumplings.  Sprinkle with remaining rhubarb.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until dumplings are golden brown.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries and sugar.  Cook and stir over medium heat until a thick sauce forms, about 15 minutes.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in vanilla extract.  Cool slightly.
  6. Transfer strawberry mixture to a blender.  Cover and process for 15-20 seconds or until smooth.
  7. Spoon dumplings into serving bowls.  Serve warm with sauce.
