  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Separate the biscuits in the can. Flatten each one into about a 3 inch circle. Place a generous tablespoon of chopped rhubarb in the center of each circle. Wrap the dough up around the rhubarb, and pinch to seal tightly. Place the dumplings seam side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, or large measuring cup, stir together the sugar, water, butter and vanilla. Pour over the dumplings in the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
  3. Bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until biscuits are golden brown.

I never met a recipe so simple to follow, quick to make, aromatically blissful, and full of tasty goodness! Not the healthiest, but blah blah blah! I cut down on the sugar (used about 3/4 cup) a...

Surprisingly great recipe that was a big hit at our house. The 2nd time I made it, I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and added the topping to the rhubarb in the filling and we liked the ...

Oh sooooo tasty! We made little individual dumplings, drizzled a little bit of sauce under and on top of 2 with a scoop of ice cream in the middle. An easy recipe that makes you look like Martha...

I have shared this with both my aunts and we all agree that it is a good recipe. We also think that we should beat an egg white and brush the biscuit, then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top. ...

This recipe was delicious! I made a biscuit dough from scratch like the baking powder biscuit recipes found on this website. The extra effort was definitely worth it. Next time I'm going to a...

Normally I dont buy prepackaged dessert stuff - including the biscuit dough needed for this recipe. However, when pressed for time this is the hands down best easy dessert recipe ever! I love it...
