Egg Roll Wrappers

"Easy to make. I have had this recipe for over 20 years and no longer remember where I originally received it. Cooking time is approximate total cooking time for all 16 egg rolls."
Egg Roll Wrappers created by Random Rachel
Ready In:


  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten (set aside a small amount for sealing)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup very cold water


  • Combine ingredients to make a dough.
  • Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Knead until smooth and elastic.
  • Divide into 16 pieces.
  • Roll into 6 inch squares.
  • (Dough should be very thin).
  • Stack rolled squares separately with wax paper between each one.
  • Keep covered so they will not dry out while making the entire recipe of wrappers.
  • Fill by making a line of your favorite filling about 1/2 from top and side edges.
  • Fold in each side over filling.
  • Brush on a small amount of saved egg along remaining side edges and the bottom edge.
  • Roll from the top to the bottom and press lightly so it will seal.
  • Fry at 350 degrees until golden brown.

    Hi! How do I fry these exactly? Which oil am I using and what is the process exactly? Am I putting them in the oven or a fryer? I don't have a fryer so I just fry everything on my stovetop. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

    This recipe is awesome. I used cup4cup gf flour (no other changes) and was pleasantly surprised with how easily the dough rolled out by hand.

    Made these today and they came out really good. I don’t have a pasta machine so had to roll them out by hand. I probably should’ve done 8 instead of 16 because they came out really small. They are more like appetizers, but the taste is there!!.

    I want to make these. How do you feel they would do with Gluten free flour? Also many real Chinese places use peanut butter in their egg rolls? How would I incorporate this? I also like very crunchy BIG fat one like the picture What would I do to make sure they turn out like this picture below?
