Potato Dumplings with Spring Roots - Home & Family

1. Fill a large soup pot or wide Dutch oven about half full of water and bring it to a boil.
2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, cheese, chives, and flour. Use your hands to knead everything together until it forms a stiff dough.
3. Roll the dough into a long tube, about 2 inches thick. Cut dough into 1-inch disks.
4. When water is boiling, gently drop dumplings one at a time into boiling water. Do not crowd the pot. Only add enough dumplings at a time to make a single layer. The dumplings will all sink to the bottom.
5. Bring the water back to a rolling boil and then turn down a little to simmer.
6. The dumplings will begin to float as they are done. Let them continue to cook for about 5 minutes after they float.
7. Remove the finished dumplings from water with a slotted spoon and place them in a colander to drain. Set the finished dumplings aside and bring the water back to a boil to cook the rest of the dumplings. Continue this process in single dumpling layers until all of the dumplings are cooked.
