These are simple dumplings made with flour, baking powder, milk and shortening which are rolled out and cut into shapes and cooked in broth.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening and add milk to make a stiff dough.
