3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
Directions
  1. In a large stockpot, bring water to a boil. Gently whisk in Chicken Base until dissolved.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk eggs. Pour eggs into a food processor.
  3. Add flour to eggs 1 cup at a time. Pulse after each addition until flour is combined. Dough will be stiff and slightly sticky to the touch. Remove and place dough into a small mixing bowl.
  4. Using the edge of a small silverware spoon, cut dumpling from dough ball. Amount of dough on spoon will be about ½ teaspoon and should have an elongated shape. Dip spoon into boiling stock to release dumpling, repeat process. Stir; reduce heat to low, simmer and cover.
  5. Simmer until dumplings are done, about 15-20 minutes. Do not uncover while dumplings are cooking, uncovering releases steam, which is needed to cook the perfect light dumpling.
