1 c. - milk
1 tsp. - salt
1 T. - butter
1 - egg
1 c. - flour
4 to 6 small to medium - peaches OR plums

1 c. - ginger snaps, crushed
c. - butter, melted
1 T. - sugar

Put 1 cup of flour in large bowl, add salt and butter. Work in the ingredients with your hand until it crumbles. Add the milk and egg. Add more flour to thicken the dough until it's like pie crust dough. It shouldn't stick to your hands and should be easy to work with.

Put some of the dough on a floured board and pat it with your hands to flatten it. Put one dry fruit on the dough and work the dough around the fruit until it's covered evenly-about in. thick. Cover all the fruit with dough this way.

Put the covered fruit in a large pan of boiling water and boil for 15 to 20 minutes. The fruit should be soft when completely cooked and can be poked with a toothpick to test if it's done.

Cut up the cooked fruit and dough and sprinkle with crushed gingersnaps, melted butter and a little sugar if needed.

Grandma would make this for lunch as a special treat for us kids but it's so good it could be a dessert.
