Learning to Make Dumplings

Dumpling doughI made dumplings for dinner. This recipe is passed down from my Great Grandma Bea. She taught Grandma and Momma learned it from her.  I learned it from Momma. Here is the recipe

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 eggs

Mix together and the dough will be gooey.  You can add more water or flour if you need to.  Mine was a little gooey, but was still good.Dumplings

Get a spoon and get about 1/4 a spoonful of dumpling stuff in it.  Drop the dough into boiling water. Wait till it goes to the top, and put in a container.  Stir occasionally.  Momma said it is okay to make a bunch of dumplings before taking them out if you want.  If you don’t cook them long enough, they will be very very gooey and gross!
