Cream Cheese Wontons
24 Wonton Wrappers
8 ounces Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 Egg (beaten)
Oil (for frying)
2 teaspoons Chives (minced, optional)
Combine the cream cheese, sugar and onion powder. Stir until well mixed.
Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and drop a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center. Brush the edges of the wonton with the egg.
Bring 2 opposite corners together in the middle of the wonton and pinch. Repeat with the other 2 corners and pinch to form a package shape.
Repeat with the remaining wontons and cream cheese until all are filled.
Heat 4 inches of oil in a deep pan to 350 degrees F.
Fry 5-6 wontons at a time, turning them as needed to make sure they brown evenly. This process should take about 3-5 minutes.
Drain the cooked wontons on paper towels and repeat the frying process with remaining wontons.
Sprinkle with chives and serve immediately with dipping sauce of choice.
