These are basic rolled dumplings for stew. Add parsley to these dumplings for herb dumplings. For chicken or turkey stew, I like to add about 1/2 teaspoon of poultry seasoning to the dough along with parsley. If you use dried parsley flakes, use only about 1 teaspoon.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon parsley (fresh, chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 1/3 cup milk

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles cornmeal. Stir in the milk with a fork just until blended and you have a soft dough.
  3. Put the dough on a floured surface. Put a piece of plastic wrap over the dough and let it rest for 5 minutes. Leaving the plastic wrap on the dough, roll out to about 1/2- to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into squares.
  4. Place on stew, cover the pot tightly, and simmer stew for about 20 minutes, until light and flaky.
