Recipe by Just Janie

This is a great appetizer that is a nice change of pace. Can be prepared ahead of time. It makes lots so it helps to have a buddy to to some folding! Serve with sweet & sour sauce for dipping.

Delicious. My family loved these little gems. They do take some time to assemble but so worth the time and effort. We did an essembly line and it worked good.
Thank you for sharing these with us. We will make again, as they didn't last long in our house.
