Old Fashioned Rolled Dumplings

Old fashioned rolled dumplings good with chicken or stews. My grandma always made them with fruit compote or tomatoes.


  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening and add milk to make a stiff dough.
  2. Roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness and cut into 1 inch squares, 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips or diamonds. Sprinkle lightly with flour and drop into boiling broth or juice. Cover tightly and boil gently for 8 to 10 minutes.

I've never eaten rolled dumplings so wasn't sure what to expect. I cooked them in homemade chicken stock and they were very good - slightly puffy and chewy. Made for Spring 2012 Pick A Chef.
