How to Form Dumplings

1. Laying the wrapper in the open palm of one hand, place a tablespoon or so of filling in the center and moisten the wrapper's edge with water.Brenda Weaver
2. Pinch opposite edges of the wrapper together to form a half-moon shape that's open at both ends.
3. With the half moon resting in your palm, use the thumb and forefinger of your other hand to grip a single edge of the wrapper near one corner of the dumpling. Fold the edge of the wrapper inward, about halfway toward dumpling's center; pinch the fold firmly closed to form a pleat, leaving the end of dumpling open. Continue to work on same side of dumpling to form a second pleat; then seal that end of dumpling by folding the corner toward you and pinching it shut, creating a third pleat.Brenda Weaver
4. Repeat step 3 to create three identical pleats on the other side of the dumpling.
