Words of advice for wontons:

■ Before assembling your wontons, make sure your cheese is at room temperature for easier filling.

■ When filling wontons, store any unused wrappers under a damp dish towel to keep them moist.

■ Don’t place more than a tablespoon of filling inside each wonton to prevent bursting.

■ To reheat leftover wontons, bake them in a 325°F oven for five to 10 minutes.

■ To freeze wontons, place them on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet (don’t let them touch) and freeze until solid. Remove baking sheet from freezer and transfer frozen wontons to a freezer-safe bag.
