My mom made these all the time while I was a kid growing up. She dropped them in hot chicken or vegetable soup and they were so good. This recipe is exactly the same as her recipe. SO good..now I am off to make some chicken soup and bollers!

Directions

  1. melt butter in water.
  2. remove from heat and stir in flour.
  3. place back on heat and stir agressively for 1-2 minutes until combined.
  4. remove from heat and let cool a bit.
  5. stir in eggs, one at a time.
  6. stir in salt.
  7. heat a pot of water to near boil, have another bowl of iced water nearby.
  8. place dough in a traditional danish melbolle press and cut with knife into hot water (WATER MUST NOT BOIL). If you do not have a melbolle press you could use a spoon, however, the dumplings will be larger and not as uniform.
  9. let the dumplings sit in the almost boiling water for 10 min; place into cold water and remove after a bit.
