Slippery Dumplings

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by sml212

I like to put these in lima bean soup and vegetable soup. They can also be used in chicken and dumpling recipes. They are also much cheaper to use than the Auntie Anne's dumplings. If you want to, you can freeze the uncooked dumplings for future use. I add the dumplings, in the last 15 minutes of cooking time when making a soup. Otherwise they cook too long.
