This is a great recipe! After reading the reviews I cut all the herbs in half and the flavor was perfect! I've tried many different dumpling recipies, including the baking mix, and I've never had such perfect fluffy dumplings. For those of you who get 'soggy, sinking, or gluey' dumplings you have to leave the lid on for the entire cooking time. If you lift it off before you will ruin your dumplings - every time! Read More

My family liked these and thought they were fine, but I found them too salty and I followed the recipe precisely. So, if I ever make these again I think I'll cut back on the salt. It had the right amount of herbs though. I think a half teaspoon of salt would be fine, considering the soup or stew you're adding them to is bound to be salty enough on its own. Either I'd do that or I would use unsalted butter. Read More

These were absolutely delicious! Delicate light fluffy perfect dumplings. I did note the suggestion of the original poster (Ronnastefan) and cut back the salt to 1/4 to 1/2 tsp... This is such a versatile recipe with herbs that can easily be changed to complement any dish that would benefit from dumplings. Will definitely become one of my "go to" recipes. Thanks so much for posting it. Read More

Not what I was expecting.. They did come out fluffy but seemed a little too overseasoned. I'll cut back on herbs next time. Read More

This was good and added some nice flavor to my chicken stew. After reading the other reviews I reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp and all the herbs to 3/4 tsp. I also added 1/2 tsp onion powder and used 1 cup buttermilk instead of 3/4 cup milk (to make it taste more like biscuits). This will replace my regular dumpling recipe. Thanks! Read More

I made these exactly as specified. The were superb! I don't think I experienced the issue with the salt that others did since I always use homemade unsalted stock and unsalted butter when I make my stew/gravy. It is always best to adjust seasonings at the end but if you use canned/prepared stock or cubes go light on the salt and you can always add more towards the end. Thanks for a great recipe! Just like Grandma used to make! Read More

After reading the reviews I left out the salt cut the thyme and oregano to half a tsp and used a full tsp of parsley. These adjustments were just right for our tastes. I would make these again. Thanks. Read More
