  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup cold water, for kneading
  • 1/2 cup flour, for dusting surface


  1. Mix together the flour and salt with clean fingers on your work surface.

  2. Create a well in the center of the flour and add the egg, whisking slowly to incorporate the flour.

  3. Add the water a little at a time and work the dough until it holds together and forms a ball.

  4. Using your hands, knead the dough for 5-6 minutes to develop the gluten.

  5. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.

  6. After 30 minutes, knead the dough again for 2 minutes.

  7. If you have a pasta roller, pass the dough through the pasta machine on its thinnest setting. (If you don't have a pasta machine, roll the dough into a long rope and cut the rope into 40-50 small pieces. Use a dough roller to roll each piece into 4-inch circles.)

  8. After thinning the dough through the pasta roller, cut the dough sheets into 4-inch circles, or about the size of the wide mouth of a mason jar. (You could also cut them into rectangles.)

  9. To keep the wonton wrappers from sticking together, dust them each with flour and stack them in a pile, wrapping the pile in plastic wrap. Freeze until ready to use.

  10. To thaw the wrappers, take them out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
