I cooked these dumplings over Chicken stew in a crock pot. They took longer because even on high they needed more heat.This meant that they were not as light as I know they normally would be. However I still give them 5 stars. The fault was mine not the recipe. I made half a recipe with no problem. These dumplings are on the menu for my next soup night.31 Oct 2015 Made again had the stew on high in the crock pot they took just over 10 minutes and were light & fluffy -great easy sure fire recipe
