    the mix'n vix'n's Note:

    This was a comfort food growing up. I can remember sitting around the table with my siblings hand-making the little dumplings. Now I make them with my kiddos. :) You can freeze the dumplings too by placing them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet, then place that in the freezer over night. Bag them up depending on an individual portion size (6-8 dumplings per person...usually LOL). Then all you have to do is bring your stock to a boil, empty your pre portioned baggie in, boil for 6-8 minutes and you have yourself some fast, better-than-takeout, wonton soup! You can also pan-fry or steam these to make dumplings :)
