3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp.shortening
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 beaten egg
1 cup chicken broth

Combine all dry ingredients, add shortening and cut in until it resembles cornmeal.

Add egg and broth (make sure broth is cooled). Mix well and turn out onto floured surface.

Do not roll....pat dough down lightly into a rectangle until approx. 1/4 inch thick, (this keeps the dumpling from getting "tough").

Cut into squares.

Drop into boiling broth. Once all dumplings are in broth reduce heat and cover for 10 minutes, stir every so often.
