These fluffy little light-as-a-cloud herb scented dumplings are simply heavenly served with my Wintry Beef Vegetable Stew With Fluffy Herb Dumplings #112055, or chicken stew. Great comfort food! Use any herb you wish-- try chives, thyme, sage, etc. French thyme, Herbes De Napa -or- Herbes de Provence are my favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, cut shortening into combined flour, baking powder, salt, parsley and herbs until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  2. Stir in milk.
  3. Drop by heaping spoon fulls onto hot meat or vegetables in boiling stew (do not drop directly into liquid).
  4. Cook uncovered 15 minutes.
  5. Cover and cook about 15 minutes longer. Cut a dumpling in half to test for doneness; you want them done but not dry!
  6. Serve immediately. Also good reheated the next day.
