The question sounds like one from fire safety class in second grade, but it's really the question posted by our friends at the Communal Skillet.  Do you roll your dumplings out like noodles before adding them to the pot?  Or do you drop spoons full of sticky wet batter into the boiling broth?  The debate, depending where you are from, may be fierce.

Check out the SFA's recipe for chicken and dumplings from the community cookbook to see how we make dumplings, and read how our friends fared with this favorite cold-weather dish.  Tend the stove carefully while they cook but, should you need some fire safety advice, the answer is "stop, drop AND roll."  But that's fire safety only -- dumpling instructions are stop, roll, and drop!
