To make the Pioneer Woman's drop dumplings, sift 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal, 1 heaped tablespoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt in a bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups of half and half and 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley. Stir the ingredients together to combine them, and drop the dough by the tablespoon in a simmering pot of water or chicken stock. Cook the drop dumplings by simmering them in a covered pot for approximately 15 minutes.

Alternatively, add 2 cups of flour to a large bowl, and whisk in 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir 1 beaten egg, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 3/4 to 1 cup milk into the dry ingredients to form a stiff batter. Drop the dough into simmering liquid and cook the dumplings until they are tender.

To make quick drop dumplings, combine 2 cups of baking mix such as Bisquick with 2/3 cup of milk to form a soft dough. Drop the dough into boiling liquid, and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered and then another 10 minutes covered.
