Some good biscuit recipes for dumplings include Betty Crocker's recipe, which uses only Bisquick mix and milk, and the dumplings from Pillsbury's easy chicken and dumplings, which calls for premade dough biscuits. Another good dumpling recipe makes them from scratch using a few basic ingredients.
Make biscuit dumplings from scratch by whisking together 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Add 1 cup of milk into the flour mixture, and stir well. Spoon the dough into boiling water or stew to form the dumplings. Cook the dumplings for at least 10 minutes until they are no longer doughy.
To make dumplings from a biscuit mix, stir 2/3 cup of milk into 2 cups of Bisquick mix. Dollop spoonfuls of the dough into boiling water, and cook them for 10 minutes. Cover the pot, and continue cooking until the dumplings are done.
Another biscuit recipe for dumplings calls for refrigerated buttermilk biscuits in a can. Open 1 can of buttermilk biscuits, and roll them out on a floured surface. Cut the dough rounds into strips, and place them in boiling water or boiling chicken broth. Cook the dumplings on low in a covered pot for 15 to 20 minutes.
