    This is the first time that I have ever made a dumpling and it came out perfect the recipe was short and sweet I was all excited to make them and then I went into the fridge and there was no butter oh my what was I going to do I remember my mom bringing some Crisco so what I did was use the same recipe but substitute butter for Crisco and I rolled them long they were delicious thank you for this recipe and what I love most about it was that it was easy and I think I can remember for next time.

    This was so easy to make! I used 1 C w.w. flour, 2 tsp. margarine, 1 tsp baking SODA (messed that up) and 1/2 tsp salt. I kneaded it about 10 or 11 times and they plumped up nicely in the tomato soup I put it into. Everyone liked them. Thanks de Roche.

    I had some delicious chicken stock left over from one of the RSC#9 recipes. I made the spinners in this stock and enjoyed dumpling soup. These are really good and I can't wait to try the "sinkers". Made for Holiday Tag. Thanks for posting!

    Made this several times, though only half the recipe each time. Found it was best with 1/2 tablespoon of butter to 1 cup of flour and don't forget the baking powder. The texture was light and when used in a curry or spicy dish takes on the flavour well. If you using in something blander I would suggest that 1/2 teaspoon of dried herbs be added. This was made for the tag game. Thank you de Roche.
