Blueberry Slump

This is my Mom's recipe, and it is so super yummy!  It's kind of like a cobbler.  It is best served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.  IF you have any leftovers  :-)  store them in your fridge and then reheat in the microwave.  My picture does not do this recipe justice.  It is delicious!  I served it to some friends of mine recently, one of them who is an actual chef, and he loved it!  It is so simple and easy to make, with few ingredients, yet elegant enough to serve for a special occassion.
1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/3 cup milk (you could probably use water if you need dairy free)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Simmer for 5 minutes while you make the dumplings.

To make dumplings, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Cut in shorterning until coarse crumbs form, then stir in milk until flour is moistened.

Drop 6-8 spoonfuls of dough into the blueberry sauce mix.  Cover pan tightly.  Simmer for 15 minutes without lifting cover.  Remove from heat.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
