My grandmother taught me how to make these.  You could make them for chicken and dumpling soup however we prefer to fry them up in butter and onions and server them as a side dish.

2 eggs
1 c water
1 tsp. salt
4 c flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder


Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Adjust if needed.  If too stiff add water, if too wet add flour.

I like stiff dough, my grandmothers is not as stiff.  So if you prefer use half the amount of water.

Boil water with 1/2 tsp. salt.  When comes to boil, put dumplings in by tsp fulls.

When the float they are done.

Unless you have a very large pot you will have to do this in batches.  Place them on a paper towel to drain.

If desired fry in butter and onions until slightly browned.


This recipe serves about 8-10 side dishes.  You can put any leftovers in a container and refrigerate.
