In the past I have generally bought the egg roll wrappers to use. Growing up we did try making them a few times but they just didn't seem the same so we would generally go back to buying them.
one at Cooks.com. It was so easy to make, it was stirred up in moments by using my food processor. The only ingredients are flour, water and salt. I did "Cheat" however and use white flour instead my normal whole wheat flour. (I don't like using 100% whole wheat when deep frying- it seems to soak up the grease.) Rolling it out makes a little bit of a mess of course but it didn't take to long as I just split the dough in two sections- and then rolled out a big piece all at once and then cut it into somewhat square shaped sections.
These wrappers taste just like the ones that we used to buy at the store. They cost much less, a really quite simple to make and don't leave any packaging to throw away.
Do you make your own egg rolls? Have you ever tried making your own wrappers?
What is something that you like to make that most people buy?
