    Dumplings: Sift together dry ingredients and cut in shortening. Stir in milk, mixing only enough to moisten dough thoroughly. Drop by teaspoons into boiling chicken broth. Dip the spoon into the boiling broth first so dough will slide off easily. Cover pan tightly and cook 15 minutes. Do not stir and do not peek!
