1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Stir in milk to make a soft dough. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto a boiling soup or stew. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes with lid closed. Makes about 8-10 large dumplings.
Large, fluffy, moist and buttery dumplings are the perfect accompaniment to a piping hot bowl of soup or stew. They are also very convenient because they easily cook right on top of the stew. It is so quick to whip up a batch of them - much quicker then rolling and cutting biscuits. The recipe can easily be altered to change quantities. Although these biscuits only contain a small amount of butter, they are fairly rich.
