I love baking things that are normally fried, it’s healthier and so much easier (I can’t stand working with hot oil). The problem is, most baked foods aren’t as tasty as fried. Well, not these cream cheese wontons. They are perfect. I’m currently obsessed with their amazingness. They are deliciously crispy yet not soaked in grease. So yummy… and extremely easy!
For the wontons (makes 16):
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 16 wonton wrappers
- add-ins of choice, optional (I used chives and garlic – yum)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay wonton wrappers on prepared baking sheet. Place 1 teaspoon cream cheese in the center of each wonton wrapper. Brush the edges with water, fold wrappers and pinch to seal (folding them in half into triangles would probably be the easiest way to go). Spray the wontons with cooking spray and bake for 4-7 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
