    OK! Here's what happened. Made up the dumpling batter using one stick of butter. The batter came out like pancake batter, as I suspected. Can't drop the biscuits that way now can we! Had to add one more cup of flour to get the smooth stiff consistancy the directions called for.

    I'm going to have way too many dumplings for the soup. Put them in anyway.

    Really do need to change the dumpling recipe to make it come out right!

    On to my modifications. I added four times the amount of salt and pepper. I have onions but also some leeks that have been in the hopper for a while so I subbed the leaks for the onion. Couldn't resist the urge to put 2 or 3 minced garlic cloves in the pot too. Finally, I had a can of condensed cheddar soup sitting on the counter for too long, so it went in the pot.

    Used an emersion blender to puree the vegetables instead of a potato masher. Just couldn't seem to get the potato masher going fast enough to puree the vegetables.

    I'm going to make this dish today. Have all the ingredients around the house. But one question about the drop dumplings. What is the 1 margarine measure? One cup, stick, tablespoon, teaspoon?
    Reason for the question is that in my minds' eye; one stick of butter, one egg, and 1/3 cup water make for more liquid than the 3/4 cup of flour and the consistancy will be like pancake batter instead of the smooth and stiff description in your directions.

    Hope you can get back to me today. I'm hungry. :)

    I always loved German food! I have to tell you the best steak I ever had in my whole life was in Frankfurt (venison with red currants reduction). Also, I come from a country with a lot of cities and villages built by Saxons, with strong German communities. German food is wonderful and never had a different opinion on it! :)
