My Granddaddy's Fruit Dumplings

My granddaddy made the best fruit dumplings. He'd roll out a pie crust and cut pieces big enough to line a cereal bowl and fold over to seal the bottom. He'd fill the crust with sliced apples or blueberries or blackberries. Any fresh fruit will do. Then he folded over the crust to seal in the fruit. He would place 6 or 8 in a 9 By 13 glass pan. Bake them  til the crust was brown. He would make a sauce with evaporated milk, sugar and cinnamon. To serve them, everybody got a bowl with a dumpling, break the crust a little and pour on some sauce. It was so good.
