This was a great recipe. I used more water, about 3/4 of a cup in all and used butter and olive oil. I also added seasonings like others suggested: onion powder, garlic power, pepper and oregano. They were delicious, but ended up tasting a bit like olive oil. That was ok, just be mindful of that if you are going to substitute olive oil for part or all of the shortening.

After reading the reviews on this recipe I decided to give it a shot. I increased the water like a lot of other reviewers had suggested (it ended up being almost 1 full cup) and made my dough in a food processor as done by another reviewer. In the end these were excellent dumplings. I will definitely make again and would suggest to anyone to give it a try.

My first attempt for any type of dumpling and these were fantastic. Light and fluffy with the right mount of chewiness. Easy too! A big hit with my family.

These are truly the perfect dumplings! They are SO easy to make and so delicious! It definitely requires more water than the recipe calls for ~ just put little by little until the flour mixture is moistened. I have made them with butter, and by replacing half of the butter with olive oil and they turned out just perfect either way. They are the perfect all around !!

Very easy, and yes, just like Mom used to make. I had to increase the water also, to not quite 3/4 cup.

These are very much like the Cracker Barrel dumplings that are served there...very dense. Easy to make.

These were so good! I took a leftover Costco rotisserie chicken carcass with most of the darkmeat and skin still attached and boiled it to make my broth. Stuck it in fridge till next day and strained out all the chicken parts and separated the good meat. Reheated broth and tossed meat back in. When it was at a good simmer I added the dumplings. They thickened the broth beautifully. The best Chicken & Dumplings we've ever had. You must try it.

These are fantastic dumplings. Traditional and old fashioned - not at all like the puffy bisquick dumplings. I made these substituting the salt for garlic salt. I did need to increase the water to about 3/4 cup. Rolled out just fine and cut nicely. Yummy!
