Dumpling Techniques:

#1 - Take a small spoon, dip it in the hot broth, then scoop out a spoonful of batter and put the spoon back into the broth so the batter drops into the soup. This creates a gnocchi-like dumpling.

#2 - The kids in my family love to take more of the Spatzele approach by dipping the spoon into the batter and then drizzling the batter over the hot broth to create long strips of dumpling.
