It's easy to make your own wonton wrappers.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup ice cold water
  • Extra flour or cornstarch as needed

PREPARATION:

Lightly beat the egg with the salt.

Sift the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and about 1/4 cup of the water. Mix in with the flour. Add as much of the remaining water as necessary to form a dough. (Add more water than the recipe calls for if the dough is too dry).

Form the dough into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes, or until it forms a smooth dough. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out until very thin, and cut into 3 1/2-inch squares. (You should have about 25 squares). Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use.
