2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons melted shortening
1 egg


Dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar. Heat milk and pour into a large bowl. Add salt and enough flour to thicken like gravy. Add shortening and egg and beat well. Add yeast and beat more. Keep adding flour until no longer can be stirred.

Put flour on bread board and knead until dough no longer sticks to hands or board. Let rise until doubled in size. Make into balls about the size of a small apple. Let rise until nice and light.

In a broiler or roasting pan, put a rack (such as used for cooling cake) in the bottom.

Put water in pan just up to rack and salt slightly. Place dumplings on rack when water comes to a boil. Cover and cook about 20 minutes. Test for doneness with toothpick. It should be light and puffy.

Remove from pan and tear open with two forks to let steam out.
