PERFECT dumplings to go with a beef stew! They were soft and fluffy and not a bit gummy.<br/>I added some parsley but otherwise fillowed to a T.<br/>(I made my own buttermilk using 2% and lemon juice)<br/><br/>Thanks Linda!

At last a truly fluffy, delicious dumpling. I added a pinch of parsley and oregano; however, I would rate this recipe higher if I could just due to the texture alone. They floated on top, never sank, and were just perfect.

These are wonderful--great flavor,and very airy. Normally I like sad (rolled) dumplings, but didn't have time to make them tonight, and I had some buttermilk to use before it expired. I'll def. make these again!
