READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Tara1183

This was my great-grandmothers recipe. I have been asked for it many times since the dumplings are always as light as a dumpling can be.

Very light and very tasty, Tara. We put them in a Chicken and chile stew, and the cheese in the dumplings was a delicious touch. Good directions, especially the bit about not overmixing. I've never frozen dumplings (never any leftover) so can't comment on that. I'd like to try it some day. Thank you for a little different dumpling.
