    Ingredients
    • wonton filling (See Notes for Shrimp and Pork Wonton Soup recipe)
    • wonton wrappers
    • water
    Instructions
    1. Place a wonton wrapper on your hand.  Place a teaspoon of the filling in the center of the wrapper.  Start with a small amount so it’s easier to work with.  Use your finger to moisten the edges of the wrapper with water.

    2. When the edges have been moistened, fold the wrapper in half to create a rectangular shape, pressing any air that might be trapped around the filling.  Fold the sides inward so that they overlap.

    3. Wet the portion where the sides meet.  Pinch to close and seal.

    4. Here is the cute little wonton!  Place the finished wontons on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with plastic to keep them moist as you continue with the remaining fillings and wrappers.

    6. To freeze the wontons, flash freeze for 1 hour (place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet covered with plastic wrap) and transfer them to a freezer bag.  Do not defrost and cook in a simmering soup for 12 minutes.

    7. Leftover filling: Make mini meatballs or patties and cook them in a frying pan. Once they are pan fried, you can pack them in an airtight container and store in the freezer for later use.  

    8. Leftover wrappers: Wrap a small piece of cheese and pan fry or deep fry cheese wontons. They are kids’ favorite!
