There are two basic methods for making the dumplings: dropping and rolling. Though they result in slightly different shapes and textures, both techniques produce tender, tasty results.   

Drop dumpling dough has a soft texture suitable for scooping out into small portions and dropping into chicken broth. Making drop dumplings from scratch may seem complicated, but it can actually be very simple. All you need to do is mix a few dry ingredients with a dairy item, such as butter, milk, or half-and-half, for fat and moisture. After the dough is mixed, simply use a spoon to drop dumplings into simmering chicken broth, put the lid on, and wait for the steam to cook them.
