These dumplings are to die for! I hope you enjoy them! (prep time includes time for cooking... I just cant figure out how exactly to work it out between the two boxes!)

I used a different dumpling dough, but both the dumpling and sauce recipes were DELICIOUS! My husband is completely addicted to chinese take-out dumplings, and he was floored that the filling and sauce was exactly like the steamed dumplings we always get for him. It was so gratifying making them for him at home. He said we'll never have to get Chinese take-out again!
