CUT DUMPLINGS

This is an old recipe that belonged to my grandmother.

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lard or shortening
2/3 cup milk

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together.  Cut in shortening with 2 knives or pastry blender.  Add milk, using more if necessary to make a soft dough.

Pat out 1/2-inch thick and cut into 1-inch squares, strips or diamonds.  Drop into boiling chicken stock.  Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
