delicious cooked on chicken broth, beef broth or any flavor you choose...plump, light and chewy dumplings...sort of this recipe is from my beloved grandma...who is no longer here..but I think I started out with 1 cup or 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour..grandma just mixed the egg, butter and evaporated milk..and added enough flour to make a dough capable of being rolled out with a glass or floured hands..sorry I can not be more exact..

Directions

  1. combine all ingredients and roll out on floured surface and cut in squares.enough all purpose flour to make a dough stiff enough to pat or roll our with drinking glass.that is what grandma used to do --
  2. We did not realize we were so poor in money.but we sure ate like kings.sorry I can't be more specific about the amount of flour.grandma just used to go the old Hoosier cabinent and crank out a couple of handfuls.just until it felt right --
  3. I think the couple of times I made it I started out with 1 cup.then added 1/2 cup at a time.until it was pliable --
  4. sorry for any confusion this may have caused -- that was not my intent.just wanted to share a down home country recipe with my zaar friends.
  5. boil 10 minutes in covered pot of broth of your choice --
  6. DO NOT PEEK!
