Easy Homemade Cream Cheese Wontons

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

A while back I posted on my instagram (kelsey_eaton) a picture of some cream cheese wontons that I whipped up while Tim ran out to grab some take-out Chinese. I feel like of silly posting the recipe since it is so easy but I had several requests so here you go!



Buy a package of these (or something similar) at your local ethnic store. They will be back in the freezer section. They are super cheap. I think our package was about $4 and it comes with enough sheets of the dough to make about 100!



Peel a layer of dough off the chunk of dough and slice in half. Spread the cream cheese onto the dough. You can add some seasonings at this point if you would like. I either just put a tiny sprinkle of seasoning salt or keep it plain.

Pinch both sides of the dough to make four pinches that gather together in the middle. It should now look like the wontons you see at the restaurant.

Fill a small pot with about 2 or so inches of oil and heat to medium. Once the oil is heated just drop the wontons into the oil and then stir them around the oil so they are evenly coated.

Pull them out when they are golden brown (usually about a minute) and let them dry on a paper towel.

This is definitely not a healthy recipe but I will admit I am a sucker for these but hate paying like $7 for these at a restaurant when they are so cheap, easy, and quick to make at home. Also, these turn out a bit thinner than the ones at restaurants. If you want the dough thicker just use 2 or three layers of dough instead of just one.

Enjoy!

  3. Are the layers frozen solid? Do you have to wait for them to defrost a bit before bending and pinching?
