I just love the dumplings they serve at Cracker Barrel restraunts and wanted to find something similar. My sister gave me this recipe...it sure fits the bill! So easy and so good! Sometimes I add cooked carrots and/or celery to it.

For broth, melt butter in dutch oven. Whisk in flour. It will be thick. Gradually whisk in broth. Bring to a boil. Add dumpling strips to boiling broth. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 15 min.
