Dumpling wrappers 饺子皮 (jiǎo zi pí)

These round dough wrappers form the skin around a variety of Chinese dumplings, such as Jiaozi Dumplings, Guotie Pot Stickers, and Shanghai Soup Dumplings. They are usually made with only wheat flour. Making them from scratch can be quite time-consuming, so if you are short on time, we recommend buying them premade from an Asian grocery store. If you want to make them yourself, follow the recipe on page 258. They are also known as dumpling skins.
