Cream Cheese Wonton Appetizer

These are great as an appetizer or to compliment a meal of stir-fry and dumplings. They're super quick, easy and cheap to make, too! A batch of 16 wontons costs around $2!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Makes about 12-14 wontons in a batch.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese (Or Mascarpone)
  • 1 tbsp Butter, Melted
  • 1 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Eggs, Whole
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 pkg Wonton Wrappers
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil

Preparation

  1. I buy Nasoya wonton wrappers for these, but any brand would work. The package I get contains 50 wrappers and usually sells for under $3 but winds up making at least three large batches of wontons making this a great budget appetizer!
  2. Take one of the eggs and whisk it for 1-2 minutes in a bowl. Dip each wrapper in the egg and set aside on a flat surface.
  3. In a large bowl, combine one 8 oz package of cream cheese (or 8 oz of Mascarpone, if preferred) with the other egg, cream, sugar, salt and lemon juice. Use an egg beater to get a creamy consistency. (A fork will work, too, but it will take longer and yield a chunkier consistency.)
  4. Use a tablespoon to distribute the mixture into the center of each wrapper. Fold into a triangle for a basic shape or pinch four sides of the wonton together to form a blossom shaped wonton.
  5. On medium heat, fill a wok or frying pan with vegetable oil and fry the wontons four at a time. The wrappers burn easily, so frying more than that at once is tricky. Let wontons fry for about 30 seconds on each side and voila! You're done.

      This sounds very interesting, might have to give it a try! Perhaps take a photo next time you make this, and add it here? I'm a big fan of anything with cream cheese!
