can I freeze potstickers?

Yes, potstickers are great to freeze. Layout assembled potstickers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once potstickers are frozen, transfer to freezer bag. Potstickers will stay fresh up to 3 months in freezer.

To cook, add frozen potstickers to skillets per instructions, they will just need a little longer to cook at a lower heat.

    Hi Valentina,i really want to try out this recipe,but im wondering were do you buy wonton wrappers?..Is it the same thing as spring roll pastry sheets?

      Alina,
      Hi there. Most bigger grocery stores carry them. They are in the same location as the spring roll sheets. Wonton wrappers work better as they cook better, but if you cannot find them, spring roll sheets will work as well. I hope to hear feedback if you give them a try. 🙂
