Dumpling Ingredients
• 3 Cups Self-Raising Flour
• 1tsp Chopped Fresh Thyme
• 450ml Buttermilk / Yoghurt
• 1tsp Salt
• 1tsp Pepper

Dumpling Crust Method
• In a bowl add all the ingredients together and mix together to form a soft dough.
• Tip out onto a lightly floured board and kneed lightly just to combine the ingredients into a soft ball.
• Press out flat to about 2cm thick and cut into round of your desired size – place the rounds onto the casserole pushing slightly into the juices of the casserole, close together but not quite touching.
• Brush with a little milk and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and serve.

TIP – This dumpling recipe can be made into scones by removing the herbs and pepper. When placed on a baking tray they must touch. Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes.
