Granny De's Dumplings

Oh my these were good. This is the recipe for Jim’s mom’s homemade dumplings. If she were alive she would have been 114 years old this coming July 29th.

•1 & 1/2 cups flour
•2 teaspoons baking powder
•2 teaspoons salt
•3 tablespoons shortening
•1/2 cup milk (or enough to make desired consistency)

Mix flour, baking powder and salt together. Cut in shortening. Add milk gradually. May need more or less milk. Should be just a little softer dough than a drop biscuit. Drop in boiling broth and cook covered over medium heat for about 15 minutes.

The grandkids were all wild over Granny De’s chicken & dumplings.
