The sweet Plum Dumplings are a fall favorite in our household. They can be served as dessert or main dish. I’ve seen variations of this recipe in Romania, Austria, Croatia and Hungary. It’s simply delicious and makes a good snack for kids’ lunches too.

I have this recipe from my mom but it’s a Hungarian inspired recipe and there are different variations so you can definitely make this your own and if you feel something else is needed, maybe you have a favorite vegetable you want to add or change the meat type go ahead.
