Recipe by Queen Dragon Mom

From the Behrendsen family. These are fluffy and really different from heavy floury dumplings.

These are indeed different...I only made half this recipe which made a huge batch. I don't know what size they're usually made, I pushed the dough off into the chicken soup from a soupspoon. That size they did not need to cook very long at all. When I added the flour to the hot water, it thickened right away without further cooking. The eggs mixed in easy and made a very smooth paste. The reason for the missing star is they don't have any texture. They are very light, you don't even need to chew, but I think this is just a matter of personal taste:)
