Reader delights in instant dumplings

Dear Heloise: My neighbor told me about an easy way to make dumplings, which she said came from your column. Take canned homestyle or buttermilk biscuits and cut them into quarters. Then just drop them in hot broth. It was delicious. — Dawn C., Hattiesburg, Miss.

You also can cut the raw dough in half and drop the pieces in hot oil to make sopaipillas. A dusting of sugar and cinnamon and you have a nice change for a coffee break. — Heloise


Dear Heloise: I had dinner at a friend’s house yesterday, and they served coleslaw, which they said was your recipe. Please reprint that recipe for me. — Frances S., Findlay, Ohio

2 tablespoons vinegar, lime juice or lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard

1/4 teaspoon celery salt

2 teaspoons mayonnaise

Salt and pepper to taste

Dash of paprika

1 head cabbage (about 2 pounds), shredded

Mix oil with vinegar or lime or lemon juice. Add prepared mustard, celery salt, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix. Pour over the cabbage; toss and refrigerate. — Heloise
