I have posted this in response to a request. I have made them once, and found that they work fine. However, I usually find it easier to just buy them. Still, it's a handy recipe to have around.
- Mix the salt and the flour.
- In a small bowl, add 1/4 cup water to the egg and beat gently.
- Make a well in the middle of the flour, and add the egg-water mixture.
- Mix into the flour, adding remaining water as needed.
- Knead the dough into a ball.
- Keep kneading until smooth (several minutes).
- Place the dough in a large bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 1 hour.
- Cut the dough into quarters.
- Place one of the quarters on a well-floured surface, and roll out with a rolling pin until very thin.
- Cut the dough into the desired shapes (usually squares or circles).
- If stacking, dust the wrappers lightly with flour or cornstarch to keep them from sticking together.
- Keep cut wrappers covered with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out too much.
- Repeat with the other quarters.
- If not using immediately, wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
