Open a pack of wonton wrappers but keep it under a damp paper towel so it doesn't dry out. Place a small bowl of water out, this is what we will use to seal the dumplings. Bring out a plate where you will keep the dumplings after you have finished folding them. If you work slowly, you may want to cover the plate with a damp paper towel while you are making the dumplings so they don't dry out.
Place a wonton wrapper on your palm, diamond shape facing you (if you are using square wrappers). Fill 1 teaspoon of filling into the middle of the wrapper.
Using your other hand, dip your finger into the bowl of water. Wet the top edges of the wrapper. *See blog post for photos
Bring the bottom corner of the wonton wrapper from the bottom to the top corner and press on just the tip. *See blog post for photos
Hold the wonton dumpling by the tip at the top with 1 hand, and use the other hand to grab the excess wrapper on the right side and press it together towards the top *See blog post for photo
Switch the dumpling to the other hand and do the same thing on the left side *See blog post for photo
Use both hands to hold the dumplings and use your forefinger or middle finger and your thumb to press everything together to seal it well at the top of the dumpling. The shape is meant to be whimsical and not perfect. Place the dumpling on the plate and cover it with a damp cloth while you work on the next dumpling. Repeat steps 2-7 until all the dumplings have been folded.
