Carbquik Recipe: Puffy Dumplings


3/4 cup sifted Carbquik
1 tsp. cornstarch
3 Tbs. vital wheat gluten
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk

Extra Carbquik and vital wheat gluten for kneading purposes.


In a small bowl, sift in Carbquik, cornstarch and the wheat gluten. Add egg and yolk and stir until a dough is formed..not gently..
Then on a countertop sprinkled with Carbquik and a little wheat gluten, start kneading your dough..folding it over..UNTIL it is dryish..(not wet)..Knead for about 5 minutes or so. You want your dough to be elastic..When you pull it comes together a little..When that happens, then you are ready to roll and cut.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it is about the thickness of pie dough..Then cut in strips with a knife or pizza cutter. You will probably want to cut them in 3rds or at least half lengthwise.
Drop into boiling broth...They cook up in about 2-3 minutes and STAY TOGETHER and are delicious...Don't let them cook too long as I can't guarantee what would happen...
