1 cup farina or all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter
Bring 3 1/2 cup of water to boil, add salt and 1 tbsp of butter, then add farina or flour and cook for 6-8 minutes constantly stirring. Remove dough from heat and add eggs, one at a time, mixing well to incorporate.
Make dumpling from the dough and cook in boiling, lightly salted water, for 5-7 minutes. Remove dumpling from the pot with a skimmer and put into colander to drain. Put drained dumpling on a serving plate, drizzle with melted butter and serve.
Instead of butter dumplings could be dressed with sour cream. If using sour cream — take 1 tbsp of butter to make the dough and 1/2 cup of sour cream for serving.
