      Thanks for the feedback! After making this recipe it inspired me to create a homemade won ton noodle (since of course I couldn’t find any pre-made gluten free won ton wrappers at my local grocery/health food stores). I’m working on it this week, so hopefully in a few weeks (if it turns out!) I’ll have the recipe ready to send out to everyone.

        Please do, my mom would be so excited to make gluten free wontons. Please send to my email address if you can.
        Thank you,
        Kathy

        Good Luck!

          Will do! I am always leary of working with new gluten free dough recipes – I’m sure you know what I mean (cracking, tearing…can be very frustrating). But since I had such success making gluten free Puff Pastry (that dough rolled out beautifully!) rolling out those paper-thin won ton wrappers don’t scare me..ok, well maybe a little 🙂

    The recipe sounds delicious but I can’t pin it to my gluten free recipe box
