Yes. It's my first attempt. I was looking for rice papers to make spring rolls, but could only find the wheat won ton papers, so I got those and decided to make this soup.

I'd eat that. Not like it matters since I am not the judge, but if I had a choice between that and the spring rolls, I would choose your won ton soup. You can go light on the anise in mine, please :laugh:
