Michelle's Homemade Dumplings

These are great to add to soup or have as a side dish.

My wedding gift from one of my very best friends was a beautiful cookbook that she created by asking all of the women in my life to contribute recipes to it.  It is filled with so very much love, photos, and yummy recipes.  Jack and I decided that we are now on a mission to make every single recipe in that book.  This is one of those recipes. 

1 1/3 C flour
1/2 C milk
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Your choice of bouillon or stock

Boil water in large saucepan with your choice of flavor (you can use chicken bouillon, beef bouillon or, veggie stock.)
Mix together dry ingredients in medium bowl.  Then add milk and egg.  When mixing together, slowly add a little more flour until the dough isn't sticking to the bowl.  Break apart pieces from your big ball of dumpling dough and drop them into your boiling bouillon water.  It's best to roll each piece into a ball so you have nice bite size dumplings.  Michelle's grandmother liked them big.  I found that they about double in size once they are boiled in the water. 

Boil uncovered for 10 minutes and covered for 5 minutes.
