Homemade Dumplings


flour 4 cups

ice water 16-20 ounces

salt 2 teaspoons

This recipe will be followed later by my Chicken and Dumpling recipe. Pictured above. Its a family favorite. This is a large amount of dumplings but my kids cant get enough of it.

First measure the flour in a mixing bowl. Next add salt. Mix with fork to blend salt in flour mixture.

I use a 16 oz. Beer mug and fill it with ice first- then fill it with water. Add water not ice and mix by hand. I usually need another half of cup of ice water.
