I just bought a Dumpling Press - now what?!
Our local kitchen supply store had a tent at our fair and I bought a trio of dumpling presses. They're cheapies, but for the amount that I'll actually use them, it was worth the $3.
Small = 2 1/4" diameter
Medium = 3" diameter
Large = 3 3/4" diameter
My 7yo daughter has requested cheese ravioli, the hunny has requested potato cheddar pierogies and I want to do some kind of pumpkin ravioli with sage brown butter sauce. The 7yo has also requested homemade playdough so she can play with it. Thinking I may give her Pie Dough instead and we'll make hand pies.
So now the fun part of - what would YOU make first?
Deep fried cheese wontons.
Make the largest size, put a bit of mozarella in it and deep fry until crunchy, serve hot dusted with icing sugar, being careful of the molten cheese.
(my favourite restaurant, a north-western chinese place, makes these as a dessert. You have to order them in advance, when you make the reservations, but boy are they good!)
