My husband and I love to have homemade appetizers for our at-home date nights. One of our favorites is cream cheese wontons. They are similar to crab rangoon, minus the crab. If you want to recreate crab rangoon, you could easily just add some crab meat to this mixture.
Even though this is a favorite for date nights, sometimes we like to treat the kids and make this for lunch instead. They enjoy it as much as we do.
Cream Cheese Wontons
- 1 8oz. block cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 c. tahini
- 6 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1 t. salt
- 1 t. garlic powder
- 1 pkg. wonton wrappers
- Oil for frying
3. Add about 1 T. of filling in the center of each wrapper. Dip your finger in cold water, rub around the edges of wonton wrapper to moisten and seal.
4. Cook between 4-6 at a time, depending on the size of your pan. Cook on one side until lightly browned, flip and brown the other side. (Sorry I don’t have exact times for these. I always just wing it until they look right, and turn down the heat if they start browning too quickly.)
