These delicious dumplings are perfect finger food. Pick them up by the stem, dunk them in dipping sauce and enjoy! We often serve them when family and friends come over for a movie night or as part of a dim sum dinner. —Steve Niederloh, Champlin, Minnesota

"I made these for the first time and found them quite good but a bit bland. I think I will add a half teaspoon of red pepper to the next batch."

"I made them again today for the third time. Hubby loves them, had to chase him out of the kitchen before he ate them all!
