"I’ve seen many rice paper dumplings coming up in my Instagram feed and was super interested in seeing what the texture was like, so I decided to try them myself, inspired by creator Woon Heng. I was surprised by how crispy the rice paper got while still having the distinct chew that I know and love from spring rolls. You could opt to fill these with your favorite dumpling filling instead, but do not skip double wrapping each one! The double wrapping is key to the crisp-chewy texture."

Add some filling to the center of the wrapper (approx. 2 tbsp), then fold the four edges over the filling to make a rectangle-shaped dumpling. Set aside. Dip another rice paper wrapped into the water and put on the cutting board. Place your wrapped dumpling into the center of the second wrapper and fold again. Set your double wrapped dumpling aside and repeat with remaining dumpling wrappers and filling.
