Deep Fried Cream Cheese Wontons

Cream Cheese Won Tons

Source

My daughter and I have a favorite snack that takes just minutes, cream cheese won-tons. All you need are won-ton wraps, cream cheese, a little bit of butter, and a nack for a good snack!

Instructions:

First heat 3 cups oil in a wok keep temperature at 5.

Take a tsp of cream cheese and place in the middle of won-ton wrap.

Put a dab of butter on one of the sides of the wrap. (the butter holds the won-ton together)

Now were going to do some origami! Fold the square in a triangle keeping the cream cheese in the middle.

Add another dab of butter on each of the three ends.

Fold the two side ends inward.

Lastly, if you choose, fold the last end down.

(It's easier than it sounds)

Now the oil should be hot and you're ready to cook your wontons

(keep children away from stove because hot oil can spit and burn)

Carefully place won-tons in wok. (it is easier to do one at a time but you can do up to ten)

Won-tons will quickly turn brown so keep turning them.

When won-tons are brown and crispy use a spatula to remove from wok.

Dab won-tons with paper towel to remove all oil.

Now your ready to eat your won-tons.Enjoy and remember that won-tons are perfect for a snack and a meal. My daughter and I love them with a stir fry.

Hate to be pedantic but I think you meant to make then into pyramids, not triangles, triangles are flat.

Anyway sounds like they taste good, in front of the TV with a beer or two...

Sorry if I sound ignorant, but what is "wontons" Cannot recall seeing that in South Africa. Or perhaps I am just dumb and/or old fashioned and out dated! My kids usually say it's the last one. lol

Merlin,

You are correct. At first you make the square wonton into a triangle, but at the end it is a pyramid. Your right great with the tv and beer.

Hi Equealla,

No worries about not knowing what wontons are. they are a chinese thin bread like substance that when fried are thin and crisp. We buy them in a pack of about 25 in a plastic covering. My kids think I am outdated too. I think that must be universal.

Thanks for the explanation. I can imagine what it is. The indian people here make something more or less like that, but very spicy, don't think it will go well with cream! I'll see if they can give me the basic recipe without the spices, then I'll try the recipe of yours.

They are also used as a noodle, like in wonton soup. Chinese use noodles both boiled and fried. I would think that any basic recipe would start with the pasta-type noodles and you could go from there.

You could probably just find a recipe for home-made noodles and make them into the shape of wontons - the flat triangles which are folded into 3-dimensional pyramids, as Merlin pointed out.

Pasta is nothing but flour and water mostly. I used to make it and my mother always made her own noodles. Kids have fun making pasta and it's so simple. You can keep them entertained for hours! Can be rolled out with a rolling pin like a pie crust and then cut into the shapes or they sell pasta rolling machines. Mine was manual but there are surely powered ones out too.

Nice thing about making your own, you can use a more whole-grain flour or combination of refined and whole-grain, so it's healthier. There's not too much healthy about these goodies otherwise. haha. But tasty, of course. ;-)

Healing Touch,

You could pass on to Equealla that you could also use Filo pastry, also available pre-made in the supermarket. I use Filo to make Spring Rolls.

I can't believe there are no Chinese restaurants in South Africa, do the Chinese know this ?

I couldn’t get through the week without a belt of MSG.....!

Merlin, hi, yes we do have chinese restaurants here and there. Something like wontons is not in the regular shops, and I never buy in the restaurants. Actually, have never been into one of them chinese ones.

The closest I come to chinese, is making sushi on the sea when we are on the yacht. Thanks for telling me this. But the idea of filo is great, -less work (lol).

Nellieanna I know how to make pasta, and this will help if I am in the bush and the shops are far and wide. Thanks for the tip.

Healing touch, thanks for your hub again, see how much I have learned!

I love these. I'd need to ride several hours to "ride them off" though. At 60 I have no metabolism! Great recipe!

Tasty treat!! Thanks for sharing. We will enjoy this weekend.

An equally easy and delicious recipe is nachoes. Use tortilla chips, grated cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend), and jalepenos. I prefer fresh jalepenos(see my I Prefer hub) over pickled. A few minutes under the broiler . . . and you are in Mexico!! Muy delicioso!!
