Deep Fried Cream Cheese Wontons
Cream Cheese Won Tons
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!
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.
