HOW TO MAKE THESE BAKED SWEET CREAM CHEESE WONTONS?
These wontons will take a few mins to prep, but I promise it will be worth it. Mix the filling, place in the wonton wrappers, seal and bake. These require few ingredients, but can be paired with the dipping sauce of your choice to really take the flavor to the next level!
The key to this dish is that the wontons are baked, not fried, which gives them a crisp, crunchy texture. And the inside? Fluffy cheese that is so flavorful. It’s a must for your holiday appetizer table.
Simply combine room-temperature (aka softened) Kraft Philadelphia cream cheese with the chopped onions and garlic. A little sesame oil helps the filling stay smooth. Lots of freshly ground pepper to top off.
Next, spoon a dollop of the cheese filling onto the center of each wonton. Brush beaten egg onto the edges of the square, and bring up the sides, pinching the corners together. You’ll know you added enough egg when the wonton stays together on its own.
Spritz with a bit of cooking spray, and pop them in the oven until the edges are golden brown.
Such an easy recipe for effortless holiday entertaining. Everyone loves them, served up with sweet & sour or hot sauce. So. Good. Bonus if you eat them with chopsticks!
