Maple syrup dumplings

Hard to photograph, but one of the tastiest things you'll ever eat, I promise you. Maple syrup dumplings are an old time Quebec treat. Very easy to make, and you won't be sorry if you do. Fluffy dumplings cooked in sweet and sticky maple syrup, hot, soft, and sweet.

1 3/4 cups maple syrup
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup milk

Bring syrup and water to a boil in a heavy pot over medium heat. Meanwhile mix your flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix in your butter until crumbly. Ideally you should use cold butter, but I've got to be honest. I've used soft room temperature butter in these before because I was having a huge craving for them at 10 PM at night and in kind of a hurry. It worked just the same. Mix your butter into your flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add in your milk a little at a time until you have a soft dough. Roll into little balls, about a tsp full of dough at a time. When the syrup reaches a boil, drop your dumplings in. Cover the pot and simmer for 15 minutes until the dumplings are cooked through and soft.

I love these just by themselves but they also delicious over ice cream.

Perfect thing to satisfy a late night craving for something sweet.
