- 1 package dumpling wrappers (round)

- On a cutting board, lay out dumpling wrappers a few at a time to prevent drying out. Put a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of each dumpling. Run a wet finger around the filling to moisten the dumpling wrapper. Fold wrapper in half to create a half-moon, and squeeze edges together.
