These potstickers may seem daunting to prepare, but once you make your first batch, you'll be an automatic-potsticker-making-machine! These are fabulous as appetizers, sides or full meals. I like to serve them at get-togethers, but watch out, they go fast! I've included an alternative lettuce wrapped version here, as well as how to make my special dipping sauce.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

This recipe makes about 4 dozen. These dumplings are a yummy treat and worth the effort. If you're like me and don't really need 4 dozen at a time just go ahead and cook them up because they freeze quite nicely.
