Cream Cheese Wontons Recipe

Cream cheese wontons are a Chinese appetizer. They go great with any Chinese dish. Cream cheese wontons are commonly found at Chinese restaurants all over. They consist of wonton wrappers filled with cream cheese, crab, green onions, and seasonings. For the best results you will want to fry these in the deep fryer but they could be fried in a pan as well. If you want to fry in a pan, just add about an inch of oil. I like to seal the wontons with beaten egg. This keeps them from breaking open in the deep fryer. You will want to make sure they are well sealed. These are best served with sweet and sour sauce. Enjoy.

You can use mayonnaise instead of cream cheese, only enough to hold everything together. Don't need to use chestnut unless you want to. Have a small dish of water while you make them and rub the edges with the water to make a tight seal. Layer them in a flat pan and sprinkle flour (very little) to keep them from sticking together until you can fry them.

Erica Anderson- yes, you can leave out the crab meat if you choose.

Is the crab meat optional?
