Cream Cheese Won Tons

    40 mins

    This is the only way I will eat cream cheese. I thought I would try it, because I love won tons and the kids love cream cheese. Try it, it's onolicious! I usually use a little bit of beaten egg to seal the won ton skins into their package shape.

    I have used this recipe several times with great success! I don't use the clams in the filling, just the cr. cheese and spices. I also bake at 350 for 15-20 instead of frying in oil. I love to crimp the tops and make the flower shape like you get in Chinese restaurants. Thanks for the post!  -  16 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these and used crabmeat instead of the clams. My kids couldn't get enough of them!  -  04 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    SOOOO good, super easy. I used my deep fryer for these, they tasted better than in restaurants because I put in a lot of filling, (in restaurants they tend to skimp on the filling) FYI, to seal the wonton shut, wet your fingertips with some water and trace the edges of the wonton, then seal them shut.  -  07 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
