Basic Dumpling Wrapper

This recipe is for making 12 dumpling wrappers, enough for all the dumpling filling recipes in this book. Keep some extra flour on hand for flouring the counter and your hands to keep everything from sticking. Also, feel free to add more flour if necessary if the dough is too sticky.

3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup boiling water
Dash of salt
Flour for dusting

1.  Mix flour and salt together.

2. Slowly drizzle in water, mixing with a chopstick or fork.

3.  Leave in bowl, covered with plastic wrap, for 15 minutes.

4.  Gather dough up into a ball and knead on counter for a minute or two until the dough is smooth.

5.  Pinch off small portion of dough and roll into a ball about 1 inch in diameter. Roll out into a flat circle on the counter, dusting with flour to keep dough from sticking.

6.  Choose a dumpling filling from elsewhere in this book and continue following the directions there.

S’mores Dumplings

My wonderful sister-in-law, Delaney Anderson, and my father-in-law Derek requested this dumpling. I only officially included the basic s’mores ingredients in this recipe, but there are lots of ways you can make your s’mores dumplings crazy! Try replacing the chocolate with chopped up or crushed bits of your favorite candy bar. Make chocolate chocolate chocolate s’mores by using chocolate grahams and chocolate marshmallows. Make grasshopper s’mores by using mint chocolate. Add some fruit like strawberry or bananas. Make chocolate peanut butter s’mores by using chocolate grahams and peanut butter instead of chocolate pieces. Use dark or black chocolate for a really rich taste or use chili chocolate for a hit of spice!

2 graham crackers, finely crushed
½ cup of mini marshmallows
½ cup mini-chocolate chips
12 dumpling wrappers
1 cup of oil for frying

1. Combine the graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate chips in a bowl.

2. Spoon mixture into dumpling wrappers and pinch closed.

3. To fry dumplings, preheat oil for 30 seconds on high heat, then lower heat to medium. Cook dumplings on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
