Let's Make It
Bring large pan of water to boil on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder, thyme and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese. Add milk and mustard; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Drop tablespoonfuls of batter into boiling water; cover. Simmer 15 to 20 min. or until centers of dumplings are done.
To prevent the dumplings from becoming tough or heavy, do not overmix the dough. Also, to prevent the dumplings from sticking together, use a large enough pan to allow space between the dumplings as they cook in the boiling water.
Instead of cooking the dumplings in boiling water, you can instead drop the dumpling dough into your favorite soup or stew. Just add tablespoons of the dough into the hot soup for the last 15 to 20 min. of the soup cooking time, keeping the pan covered while the dumplings cook.
For more flavor, cook the dumplings in 1 qt. (4 cups) chicken broth instead of the boiling water.
