Directions

  1. Combine the flour, salt, hot water and shortening in a bowl and incorporate into a smooth dough. Allow the dough to rest for 20 minutes, covered.
  2. Combine the filling ingredients. Combine the dipping sauce ingredients.
  3. Roll the dough out about 1/8 thick. Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out 3 inch circles. Brush a little water over the circles and place about 2 teaspoons of filling in center. Fold the circles in half and press to seal, making sure to squeeze out any air. Stand the dumplings up on the folded side and press slightly so that they stand up nicely.
  4. To cook, bring a pot of salted water to boil, and boil the dumplings until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain well. The dumplings may be frozen at this point for future use; this recipe makes about 8 dozen. Heat a skillet with about 2 tablespoons oil and fry the dumplings on one side only, until nicely browned. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve with the dipping sauce.

I was going to give this recipe just 4 stars because it doesn't taste EXACTLY like TGI Fridays, but they're so amazingly good they deserve 5 stars! I don't make my own dough, I buy wonton wrappers at the store to speed things up. Other than that, I don't change a thing. I've made them without water chestnuts when I don't have them, and they always turn out great! My mom and I are totally addicted to these now. We're making them when my husband and I go visit for Christmas. Lol.
