Corn Dumplings

 Corn Dumplings
Cornmeal and kernel corn give a double dose of harvest flavor to the soft dumplings. I serve them with chicken and gravy.
8-9 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup chopped whole kernel corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1-1/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, divided
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 quarts chicken broth

Directions

  • In a saucepan, combine cornmeal, salt and water; bring to a boil over
  • medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until very
  • thick. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Remove from the

  • minutes. Add egg; mix well. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour and
