    Default Really Dense Dumplings (follow-up)

    Hmmm, looks like google groups won't let me reply to older topics...
    anyway, a while back I made a thread asking for a recipe for really
    dense dumplings for Chicken and Dumplings. Anyway, I found it...

    2 cups AP flour
    1 cup milk
    3 tbls butter
    salt & pepper

    heat milk and butter until butter is melted... add to dry ingredients.
    Mix and knead until ball comes together... roll to desired thickness,
    cut and plop in pop working in batches... give each batch about 10
    minutes to cook before adding next batch.

    But when I make dumplings I don't want them dense :-) I want them to be
    springy light texture which combines, light mouth-feel, and
    ribsticking satisfaction.

    Sorry John, I must have missed the thread. Here's mine, I used to love mama's little
    leadballs more than anything else she would make (except for her french apple pie).

    Dumplings (Mama's Little Leadballs)

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 cup milk

    Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Bring just to a simmer in a small saucepan
    the butter and milk. Add to the dry ingredients. Stir with a fork or knead by hand 2
    to 3 times until the mixture just comes together. Push the chicken pieces down so that
    they are submerged in gravy and gently drop spoonfuls of the dumpling dough over the
    top. Cover pan tightly and simmer slowly for 15 to 20 minutes. Don't remove the lid.
    Serve immediately.

    "Springy light texture" conjures up soggy mushy dumplings... I like
    the bite of a harder, dense dumpling

    I omitted the baking powder (levener) since my goal was a more dense
    dumpling... I've had dumplings puff up and fall apart one too many
    times.

    Theyíre really two totally different things. I like both.
