2. Heat sesame oil in skillet; saute cabbage & carrots until cabbage is softened
3. Add garlic, ginger, chestnuts, edamame, & cornstarch mixture to skillet; saute until heated
4. Place won ton skins (about 2 at a time) on a work surface, with a corner of each facing you (a diamond shape). Brush top & right corners of each with egg. Place 1 TB filling in center of each; fold bottom corner then left, then right then top, forming a rectangle.  As they are assembled, place egg rolls on an oiled baking sheet.
