I grew up eating this German dumpling soup and now make it for my family. It has a creamy chicken base with dumplings, potatoes, and carrots. My kids love it, and it is a great comfort food on a chilly day!

  • While the soup is cooking, mix the dumpling mixture. Combine 2 cups flour, warm water, eggs, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Knead with your hands until dough is combined and a little sticky, adding more flour if necessary.

  • Use scissors to cut 1/2-inch by 1-inch pieces dough directly into the soup; dumplings will swell as they cook so don't cut the pieces too big. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Add half-and-half and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
