Gina's Favorite Dumplings

This is the only fool proof dumpling I have ever made. It is a keeper! It stirs together in no time and cooks up so light and fluffy every time. It has never failed me. It is perfect for chicken dumplings. Just spoon on top of your favorite recipe and enjoy. I usually double the recipe.
