Author Notes: This is how may mohter always made her dumplings. We are of Czech heritage, so I believe this is how the Czechs made their dumplings. As in this and many other things my mother made, she never used a recipe, but I figured out the dumplings so I could pass on the recipe to my children. —Diane Steinberger
