Roll out to your desired thickness for dumplings or you can roll thinner for noodles. Cut into strips, squares, or any shape you like. Let dry while you prepare broth or soup.
Drop dumplings into boiling broth, and cook until tender. Time will depend on the thickness of the dumplings and how dry they were.
