Questions and Reviews
Can dumplings be frozen before cooking? If so, fo I need to let them thaw first before cooking?
Hi Barnett, yes, you can freeze the dumplings before cooking. It’s best to freeze them as soon as you wrap them to prevent the dough from drying out.
To cook them, you don’t need to thaw. Just cook them like you cook the fresh ones, although they do require a bit longer cooking time.
