I used for potstickers... YUM!!! If you are one of the unlucky rolling these out by hand, I found that rolling out each of your 4 pieces into a square smaller than recommended, cutting into 9 equal smaller squares, and then rolling each square individually to size worked best for me, and there was no problem getting them thin enough using this method. Do yourself a favor and fill each one (or have a helper do it) as you roll it out - I had a horrible time with them sticking together having put the finished wrappers in a big stack and ended up wasting most of a batch. But the few potstickers I managed to make were so good that I saved my filling for the next day and tried again. A lot of work but well worth it!
a five for the actual dough. a 1 for the amount of work vs. product. if you don't have a pasta maker, and you can get wrappers from the store, save your self the frustration and hours of time and get the pre made wrappers.
Perfect every time. Made in the food processor because it decreases kneading time. Pulse to form a ball and then knead by hand for a few minutes. BE AWARE you may need to add a few drops of extra water to make the dough softer! Don't add too much, though, or you will have paste. Also VERY IMPORTANT to let the dough rest for at least 1/2 hour (covered) before working with it. Otherwise, your arms WILL fall off! GREAT SUGGESTION ABOUT USING THE PASTA MACHINE by another reader. DUH! I can't believe I didn't think of that! Anyway, thanks, Steven for this recipe. I live in Italy in a small town where Wonton wrappers don't exist.
What a FUN and fabulous recipe!! I was sooo impressed with how these fried up! Restaurant quality indeed. One suggestion though... when working with the dough be sure to keep the extra dough balls moist under a damp towel, it will be much more pliable this way. Thanks Stephen.
This recipe is VERY hard work if you have to roll the dough out by hand (w/ a rolling pin). If you have a pasta roller machine you'll save a lot of time and effort (and might spare yourself sore arms the next morning). I only needed to add 2 tsps. of extra water. Don't be fooled into thinking you need to add a lot more water. If the dough is sticky it will stick the rolling pin... Roll it out thinly for best results!
These turned out really good. Just make sure you roll them out REALLY thin, otherwise you won't get the crispy texture.
Great recipe! And I don't even mind making them with a regular old rolling pin: it's pretty good exercise. :) The only little thing I would suggest is to make sure you use a large or extra-large egg; if not you'll end up having to use more water with the dough.
My first attempt at making peking ravioli, and the store didn't have wonton wrappers. Luckily, I found this recipe. I didn't have much experience at making dough of any sort, but this recipe was really easy and quick. And the peking ravioli came out excellent!
