  • Place 1 tsp mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Wet edges of wonton and fold to form a triangle shape. Seal edges. Press two corners of folded wonton together to form a hat and seal.
  • Bring six cups of water to a simmer in a large pot.
  • Gently place 12 wontons into boiling water. Add ½ cold water and allow water to return to a simmer. Add more cold water as needed, ½ cup at a time, to maintain a gentle simmer.
