Easy Cream Cheese Wontons

Wontons of all kinds are delicious appetizers! And they're easier to make than you think.

  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • powdered sugar
  • wonton wraps
  • water in a bowl
  • oil

  1. Put the cream cheese into a bowl. Add powdered sugar to taste and mix. You can also make them without the sugar, which I prefer.
  2. Place a square wrap on a cutting board, tilted so it looks like a diamond, not a square, from your point of view. Scoop about half a small spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into the center of the wrap. (Do not overstuff the wonton or cream cheese will spill out from the corners, causing the hot oil to splatter when the wonton is fried.)
  3. Fold the top corner of the wrap over to the bottom corner, forming an upside-down triangle. Seal the edges with water.
  4. Fold one side of the wonton wrap to the bottom corner and seal the edges with water. Repeat with the other side.
  5. Fry the wonton in hot oil until it is golden brown and crispy. Let it cool before eating.

Other options:

  1. Once the wontons are done frying, sprinkle them with more powdered sugar or coat them with a sugar and cinnamon mix.
  2. If you don’t want the wontons filled with cream cheese, fry them in strips. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar and top them with strawberry sauce: puree strawberries with powdered sugar and then mix in chopped strawberries.

I am the person who eats too many of the cream cheese wontons at get-togethers. Love those things.

I rarely have cream cheese in our house, but actually have 4oz left after making THIS delicious cilantro sauce recipe -

Now I'm considering treating myself and making this unhealthy yumminess. That is what's no fun about having a healthy husband, I'd have to send him out with friends for the night to avoid getting disapproving looks. Thanks for the recipe!

Thanks for the other recipe! Sounds good, though I hope it's not too spicy.

Does Oscar really do that? I'm sorry. I consider myself a moderate health nut. Our basics are healthy but we do indulge! I haven't made these in a very long time though.
