      I made this to recipe but I doubled it. I'm not sure about the cooking time. They started to float within a couple of minutes of going in the water. I tasted one as soon as they started to float and I could really taste the flour, so I decided to wait the 20 minutes as one reviewer said. However, after about 10 or 12 minutes they started to get pretty soft. I took them out after 15 minutes and they were falling apart. I think next time I'll take them out after about 10 minutes. But, they were good.

      I love these. Here's a tip for the leftovers. Put them in the fridge overnight to get really cold. Melt some butter in a frying pan, slice up the dumplings about 1/2" thick and fry in the butter until golden brown. Yum-O!!!!

      As a german major at my local University, and someone who loves to cook, I thought it was time to start learning traditional german recipes. I tried this for dinner tonight-and it was excellent! The recipe is vague, but for good reason-one just needs to add flour, water and salt and pepper when making the dough until it gets to the right consistency. One new at cooking might have trouble with this, but for me, it worked out well. I think I will add more flour next time, but these were great with the rotkohl I had cooking on the stove for almost two hours-very satisfying, and a good texture. I left the skins in the mashed potatoes and thought it turned out well, in case anyone else wants to try that. Lecker!
