HOMEMADE DUMPLINGS

This recipe is from my aunt.

2 cup sifted self-rising flour (or Bisquick)
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup sweet milk*

Cut shortening into the flour until it has the appearance of cornmeal. Put in the milk and work until real firm, then work some more. Roll real thin and cut.

Drop dumplings into boiling broth, with a few drops of yellow food coloring. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes then cover and turn off the heat. Let set about 15 minutes.

Note: This recipe may be made, rolled out and cut then laid on waxed paper and frozen for later use.

*Sweet milk is whole milk NOT sweetened condensed milk!
