The Austrians are world champions in making warm desserts, and these strawberry Töpfen (Erdbeerknödel) dumplings are proof of that. Strawberries are encased in a delicious chewy dough, boiled, then rolled in a crunchy layer and covered with butter.

Dumplings, whether sweet or savory, are a staple of Austrian-Bohemian cuisine. Strawberry dumplings are a particularly luxurious collection. The fruity scent that gives off when one is cut open is an intoxicating scent!

Topfen (farmer's cheese, curd, or quark) is the main ingredient in the dough for these dumplings. It gives the dough elasticity and a delicate cheesecake-like flavor.

We use the same dough to make strawberry pies as apricot pies. I've tried a lot of recipes and these are the easiest to work with and the dumplings are light and delicious.

You don't need to wait for strawberry season to make strawberry muffins. Using frozen strawberries is actually my favorite way to make them and I make them all year round. You just wrap the dough around the frozen strawberries. Easy.

* Ingredients :

° 2 rolls of an 8-carat crescent moon
° 1 - 1 1/2 cups sliced ​​strawberries
° 1 cup butter
° 1 cup sugar
° 1/2 cup brown sugar
° 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
° 1 12 oz can 7Up
* Instructions :

Preheaat oven 350.
Butter a 9 * 13 baking dish, set aside.
Roll your crescent rolls and cover with about 1 tablespoon of sliced ​​strawberries.
Roll up starting from the end of the log.
In a skillet on heat, dissolve butter.
Once the butter has melted, add the sugar and vanilla and stir until combined, you want it to become granular.
Remove from heat and pour over crescent rolls.
Pour 7up around the sides of the rolls.
Baking about 41 min  .
Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly until the sauce thickens.
+ Notes :

When mixing the butter and sugar mixture together, it should be granular so that it does not boil over.

You'll want to let the strawberry pies cool a bit, as this will help thicken the sauce.

Optional but highly encouraged to serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

If you can help her try not to pour the sauce directly over the dumplings themselves, we want them to get a little brown and crunchy.

You don't have to use 7up, you can use any soda lime/soft drink you like.

You can also use chopped strawberries and not cut into cubes.

Enjoy !
