You may have noticed that I have a thing for cream cheese, since I have posted recipes for a cream cheese spread and a cream cheese omelet. Yes, yes, I do. Another way I love cream cheese is in a sandwich with marinated sliced tomatoes and chopped iceberg lettuce.
But nothing compares to Cream Cheese Wontons.
Cream Cheese Wontons
24 Square wonton wrappers
1 8 oz package cream cheese (plain or flavored)
Oil for frying
Sweet and sour sauce (for dipping)
Place approximately 1 teaspoon of cream cheese in the middle of the wonton wrapper. Lightly moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper with water and fold in half to form a triangle. Fold the remaining 2 edges together and seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
Heat oil in a deep skillet or fryer to 350F. Fry wontons 6 to 8 at a time for about 4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
Serve plain or with sweet and sour sauce for dipping.
