go back to the pot and you might have to add more broth. You want to make sure that the broth is enough to cover your dumplings. Add the stick of butter. When butter is melted and broth is boiling drop the dumplings in 1 at a time. Ddo not stir to fast. You want your dumplings to stay together. After 20 minutes cooking on meidum, the dumplings should be done.
