Mary D. MartinIsn’t it interesting how one thought leads to another? Remember the Strawberry Shortcake dolls? My daughter enjoyed them. I was thinking about their names one day and realized l had eaten strawberry shortcake, blueberry muffins, angel cake and lemon meringue; but never apple dumplings. I headed for the kitchen to make some. Oh, my, were they good! Better than apple pie.

Well, the years went by and I grew a nice productive patch of raspberries. As you know, one thing leads to another, and I decided to add raspberries to the apple dumpling recipe. I must admit, the flavor enhancement was like adding frosting to the cake.
