      These are better than my mother's, and that is high praise indeed. They are superb, tender and featherlight. They would make great dumplings in soup or a stew (say with some chopped onion and parsley or other herbs stirred into the dough), just using the dough. I would add a touch less salt when I make them as sweet dumplings again, and use 3 cups of water to cook them in, because I found that they had soaked up almost all the water when they were cooked, so I had to add more water to make the syrup. Brilliant!
