For those of us who like to make EVERYTHING ourselves -- an original wonton wrapper recipe. Use the wonton wrappers to form tasty little dumplings stuffed with your favorite fillings.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the water.
In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Create a well in the center of the mixture and slowly pour in the egg and water. Mix well. If the mixture is too dry, increase the amount of water one teaspoon at a time until a pliable dough has formed.
On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until elastic. Cut dough into two separate balls. Cover the balls with a damp cloth for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Cut each ball into four equal pieces. Roll the pieces into 10 1/2x10 1/2 inch squares. Cut the squares into 3 1/2x3 1/2 inch squares. Use in any recipe that calls for wonton wrappers.
