I really do need to read teh posts more carefully. Charlie, you and Constance have hit the nail on the head. I'm not as fond of the noodle-type dumplings, or sliders as they are sometimes called, and so don't think of them when I think of dumplings. My bad. I'm glad you picked up on what Jessica was looking for. Ah well, live and learn. Good job guys and gals.

I like both kinds of dumplins but where I live the noodle type are the most common.

I prefer the noodles...the drop dumplings that I've tasted were sticky dough-balls, and not pleasant to my pallet. I prefer an oven baked biscuit, broken in pieces and dropped into my soup.

When done just right, they are like tender, fluffy biscuits that have been dipped in chicken soup, a bit soggy on the very outside, but moist and fluffy on the inside. My mother was an expert dumpling maker. I learned to make them watching her. I used to wonder how she could make so many different things, all without recipes. And now I do it. It's in the genes, and in the jeans.

I like a dense dumpling, just flour and eggs, salt. I do not like fluffy dumplings at all.

thank you all so much for your replies. :)
i think i will try the little bit of water at a time.
also, all of your suggestions sound so good...with and without eggs dumplings are great. for now, i am wanting to try and get it like my late grandma did. it's been so long since she was with us that i hope i can even remember how good hers were so as to know if i get my attempt right at making them like hers.

oh...btw...for those who say they need to read the orig post more...it's o.k....i enjoy your various responses anyhow.

Very little water. You can make noodles / dumplings with just eggs and flour.

The dumplings are the easy part. I hope you can get it down just right. I too make certain dishes in memory of loved ones who have passed. It somehow brings back some very good memories. You are a great lady to do this. It honors your grandmother.
