Advice on freezing potstickers?

Anne H | Dec 2, 2006 03:15 AM

I just used my new bamboo steamer for the first time, making potstickers. Yum. (And thanks to everyone for advice about how to keep them from sticking, etc.!)

Homemade potstickers are so much better than store-bought, but they are a fair amount of work. I'd like to experiment with making a double batch and freezing some, so I could have them when I don't have lots of time but want something special.

Do I just put them raw into the freezer? Today I made some with ground chicken, and some with cream cheese and crab meat. Can I freeze cream cheese? Do I cook the meat ones first, or freeze them raw?

Do I need to do anything to prevent the wrappers from drying out in the freezer? (Other than probably not leave them in the freezer for a really long time.)

And I assume that I cook them the way I would store-bought frozen ones?

Thanks for any help!
