Teeny Tiny Butter Dumplings for One

These tasty little dumplings are great when you are a little under the weather and can't eat much, but plain chicken broth isn't enough.
They can also be added to tomato soup (good!) or any soup or stew you wish.
I often add them to chicken broth for a quick mid-afternoon snack.

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
soft butter
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1
egg
3 Tbsp
flour

Step-By-Step

1Cream butter and egg. Add salt, baking powder and flour.

2Bring soup or broth to a boil.

3Drop dough from teaspoon into boiling mixture, cover, and simmer for 8 minutes.
*If the steam hurts your hands, this is an alternative way to drop in the dough: Put the mixture into a zip-lock plastic bag. Snip off a corner. Keep a cup of cold water next to you to wet you fingers, and squeeze out the dough through corner of bag, snipping off dough with your fingers. Wet finger tips as needed. This way your hands can be held to the side of pot, rather than directly above the steam.
