Whether you make Egg Rolls, Filled Desserts or Appetizers with his wonton dough, it's a versatile dough that will do it all! Check out the easy ingredients for the dough then let your imagination of fillings run wild! Enjoy!

Homemade Wonton Wrappers

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

2 tablespoons water

Place flour into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, salt, and water. Create a well in the center of the flour and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix everything together with the paddle from an industrial electric mixer, until the mixture begins to come together.

Knead for 3-5 minutes.

Cover the dough with a damp towel and let rest for 1 hour. Divide the dough in half.

Cover one half of the dough with your towel.

Add some cornstarch on a cutting board (or whatever you use to roll the dough out on) to roll out your dough on.

Roll half of the dough as thin as you can, forming a rectangle roughly 20”x10”.

Cut the sheet into your desired shapes. Usually, store-bought is 5 to 7-inch squares and are perfect for egg rolls.

I use 3-inch squares or circles for wontons or dumplings and desserts.

Repeat with the remaining dough. Use the wonton wrappers immediately or freeze.

Shrimp and Crab Rangoon Recipe

15 wonton wrappers

9 peeled and deveined shrimp chopped (boiled or precooked)

1/4 cup chopped crab meat fresh or canned ( you can use the crab sticks I prefer not to since they get soggy)

4 ounces cream cheese room temperature

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

salt, pepper to taste

pinch of cayenne pepper


egg whites or milk

melted butter if baking

Mix all together in a bowl. Using a wrapper, place a good amount (1 heaping teaspoon ) in the center of the wonton. Fold all four ends to the top joining together and sealing the edges like a flower with egg whites or milk. You can also just make triangles the same way.

Either deep fry in hot oil or bake on parchment paper on 400-degree oven. Note: if baking brush with butter first.
