Makes: 1 pound

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ tsp. vegetable oil

Directions

  • In a bowl, sift together the flour and salt. In another bowl, combine the egg and water. Turn the dry ingredients onto a work surface and hollow out a well in the center with your fingers or fist. Incorporate the flour into the egg with your fingers until a dough forms. Knead the dough until it is smooth and firm, about 5 minutes. Oil the dough and cover with an inverted bowl. Allow it to rest for an hour.
  • Roll out the dough in paper-thin sheets and cut into 3" squares for wontons or 7" squares for egg rolls. Alternatively, cut circles with a 3" round cookie cutter or glass for wontons. Let the pieces dry for about 10 minutes, and then dust them with cornstarch. They can be stacked and refrigerated this way.
