Dumplings                        Grandma Petersen (Lil)

1/2 cup milk                        1 teaspoon butter

pinch of salt                        4 Tablespoons flour

1 egg

Boil milk, butter and salt.  Remove from flame and add flour, beating well.  Let rest one minute, then beat in egg (and baking powder, if desired).  Using two spoons, one to dip first in boiling water and then to cut dough and the other as a "pusher," drop dumplings into rapidly boiling salted water or broth.  Cook 5 minutes.
