Danish Dumplings

Hellena Christenson


I got this cherished recipe from my ex-mother-in-law who is a fantastic cook! This recipe came across the prairie with her Danish Mormon ancestors. I drop these into leftover-turkey soup and they are unbelievably yummy. I have to make a triple batch and my kids still fight over who ate them all. They would be good in any soup or stew, dutch oven or just in steamed milk. Other than my kids, this is the best thing that came from that marriage! :-)
