Making Dough for Dumplings - what did I do wrong?

cryssy | Jan 17, 201401:02 PM

Tried making dumpling dough for the first time today and what a disaster! The dough just never seemed to get to the "elastic ball" consistency the recipe called for. Was too wet regardless of how much more dough i added to it.

what I did:
1. mixed 3 cups all purpose flour with tspn salt in a bowl
2. slowly mixed in 2 cups of boiling water in increments, whiles stirring the dough mixture.
3. Added a cup of cold water and continued to mix.

dough just never came together. What'd I miss?
