Can I freeze unused wonton skins?

I only end up using half of the package (if I'm lucky) before it gets moldy. I'd like to cut down on this waste, so can anyone tell me if I can freeze the wonton skins as they are, or will the freezing screw up the texture?

  1. Yes. Depending on what type of skins you purchased, they may break up a bit more on boiling than non-frozen. No difference frying.

    1. I regularly store them in the freezer for future use. Thaw them carefully, at room temp.

      1. Yep, I do it all the time. Wrap well for freezing so they don't dry out.

        1. Interline with wax paper so you can pull off only as many as you need.
