Expert Tips

  • All-purpose flour is best for this recipe. Other flours will work differently and may alter the cook time.
  • Be sure the broth is boiling when you drop in the dumplings, so the bottoms cook. 
  • You can add 1 to 2 teaspoons dried herbs to the dumpling dough before cooking for added flavor.
  • Sprinkle the dumplings with grated Parmesan cheese for a savory finish.
  • Drop dumplings are used in stews like chicken and dumplings or soups like chicken soup.
