Cheater Dumplings

This is one of my go-to recipes on busy nights. I call it "Cheater Dumplings" because it is so much faster than making the soup from scratch but you still get the homemade dumplings (which are the best part of the soup anyway, right?!) You can use any type of canned soup, but at our house we buy el cheapo brand of chicken noodle soup. This is also a great meal to stretch a budget. The dumpling recipe is from my grandma, so you know it's got to be good!

2 cans soup
2 cans water

1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil

Pour soup and water into a large pot. Bring to a boil. Mix all the dumpling ingredients together until just moistened. Drop by teaspoon atop bubbling soup. Cover tightly. Reduce heat. Don't lift the cover. Simmer for 12-15 minutes.
