Whether floating on top of soup or nestled into a chicken casserole, dumplings are a classic winter comfort food to me. We're talking about those bready, fluffy, herb-filled dumplings the size of meatballs. A few of those in a dish and I'm a goner. Just take a look at these recipes. The best thing about these dishes is the way the dumplings start to melt into their surroundings. The dish turns thick and creamy almost magically. Meanwhile, the dumplings themselves are absorbing liquid and becoming soft and chewy. This combination of textures might not be for everyone, but for me, it's instant comfort.
