Directions

Print
  1. Mix together flour and salt. Cut shortening into flour/salt mixture using a pastry blender, fork or two knives. Stir in water to form a soft dough.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out dough very thin with a rolling pin. Cut into 1 inch wide strips (I use a pizza cutter, but a sharp knife works also). Tear 1 inch long pieces of dough from these strips and drop into simmering broth.
  3. Cook 10 minutes with the pot lid off, then 10 minutes more with the lid on. Serve with the broth and chicken meat, if using.

Loved these!! I've always made the fluffy, Bisquick type of dumplings but always wanted to try a more "spaetzle" type. The recipe is great, although I found that I needed more like a half cup ...

Excellent dumplings! When I pinched off the dough I rolled the dough into balls then dropped them in! These were fabulous in my beef stew and so incredibly easy to make! Thank you so much for...

This is how dumplings are supposed to be made

This recipe is just the way my Grandfather made them, but in those days lard was the thing. As for those silly city girls, these dumplings are NOT supposed to rise, hence the All-Purpose flour. ...

Good basic dumpling recipe. But I had a lot of problems getting the dumplings thin enough which made them a little tough. But, still a good recipe.

I love these dumplings! They are so easy! I have made them many times and always get compliments. People can't believe that I made them myself! Thanks Pat!

made this for ham pot pie and my husband said these dumplings was the best he ever eat. He loved them and i should print this recipe and use it always. They turm out thick and doughy like we lov...
