Buttermilk Dumplings

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Cookin In Texas

I read the reviews so I hunted down the recipe again and it read 1 2/3-2 cups all purpose flour. Sorry for the misprint it should be good to go now. This is a great dumpling recipe.

I made this one despite the negative comment about them not rising because it didn't have any additional fat in it, like shortening. To make it healthier, I left out the salt and used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. After adding one cup of flour, the dough was way too moist. I probably added close to another cup of flour before the consistancy was what I expected. This may have been why they didn't rise for the other person. I checked them after about 10 minutes and to my surprise they had risen a lot. After 15 I wasn't sure they were done, so I cooked them about 20 minutes. I also had put 2 tablespoons of milled flax seed in to make them even healthier. The flax seed and whole wheat flour was plenty of flavor even without the salt.
