Mmmm... Like alot of other people, I used this for the dumpling recipe and I really like it. The texture is similar to Cracker Barrel-style dumplings, nice and heavy. I shrunk the recipe down to 1/4 because I knew it would otherwise make waaay too much for my pot. The proportions were this: 1 egg, 1 1/2t oil, 3/4t salt, 1/4t pepper, 1/2c water, and 1c flour. Like others I found it soupy so I added a bit less than a 1/4c extra flour and that helped firm it up. You don't need it really firm, just enough to hold together when you drop them in. I think next time I'll cut the water to 1/3c and see if that thickens it up enough. I just used the side of my wooden spoon to scoop off a thin ribbon of dough and drop (shake!) it in. Definitely aim for really thin ribbons because they plump up alot and then have trouble cooking all the way through. I still had a little dough left over (glad I cut the recipe so small!)but that may be remedied when I reduce the water. All-in-all, a very good dumpling recipe I will be using frequently!
