      I've made these many times over the years and they are delicious! I was going to post the recipe but was surprised to find that it was already here. This is great cold-weather comfort food. After bringing the broth back to a boil after adding the dumplings, be sure to reduce the heat to medium or below. If you have it cooking at more than a gentle simmer the dumplings may fall apart. I also find that they are done before 15 minutes. Watch carefully and stir several times while cooking.

      Umm....hmmm. Pure comfort food at it's best. Cooked the dumplings in chicken broth for 15 minutes. Stirred occasionally, then added a rotisserrie chicken, from Costco, shredded.

      I was born, raised, and have lived in Sussex County, Delaware all my life. I must tell you that this recipe is not the true recipe for our slippery dumplings. We never add baking powder. When I get time, I will post a true Delaware Slippery Dumpling recipe. Debaylady
