Dumplings: On baking sheet, toast hazelnuts in 350°F (180°C) oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove to towel and rub off as much of the skins as possible; let cool. In food processor, pulse hazelnuts until coarsely ground.

In bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, spelt flour, hazelnuts, sugar, baking powder and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs. Using fork, mix in milk to make soft ragged dough. Set aside.

In bowl, toss together apricots, sugar and cornstarch; transfer to shallow Dutch oven. Pour in water and lemon juice; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drop dumplings by spoonfuls onto fruit mixture. Cover and simmer over low heat until dumplings are firm to the touch and dry, 15 to 20 minutes.
