Warm berries 'n dumplings whip up fast for a cozy dessert.  For these casual treats, just a pan will do, going from kitchen stovetop to table with ease.
1 pound frozen mixed berries
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
6 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1. In a medium skillet, cook berries, lemon juice, 4 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 cup water over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 11 to 13 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 2 tablespoons sugar; add melted butter and buttermilk.  Stir until a moist dough forms.  Dividing evenly, spoon 6 dollops of dough over fruit.  Combine cinnamon and 1 tsp. sugar and sprinkle over dough.
3. Cover pan tightly with foil and cook over medium-low heat until dumplings are set and tops are dry to the touch, about 15 minutes.  Serve warm.
