These are simple to assemble and sheer gold sitting in your freezer! The uncooked pot stickers can be placed on a parchment-lined tray (make sure they’re not touching) and frozen. Transfer to a plastic freezer bag and store for up to a month. To cook the frozen pot stickers, add an extra minute to the cooking time after the water is added. Continue Reading →
