Ellen's Story

Found this in my e-mail this morning and it sounds so easy I just had to borrow it. I love things that make their own crusts or topping.

Reda, there is no exact science to this. I generally use a soup spoon as opposed to a measuring spoon. I just eyeball it to determine how many spoonsful I will have. It doesn't even have to be exactly 12 dumplings. If you want to be exact, you could measure it out into another bowl before adding it to the pot until you have the right proportions. But I wouldn't worry about it that much. It's going to taste the same no matter what you do. Good luck!
