Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 3 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1 tbsp minced sweet onions
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine and mix well softened cream cheese with chopped green onions, minced sweet onions, sugar and salt.

  2. Crack an egg into a small bowl and whisk it. Set aside.

  3. To wrap the wonton, spoon a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture onto the middle of a wonton wrapper. 

  4. Using a brush or finger, brush all four sides of the wonton wrapper with egg mixture. 

  5. Pick up two opposite corners and press them to each other, then pick up the other two opposite corners to the middle and press the sides together to seal and close the seams. 

  6. Repeat Step 3-5 until all the cream cheese mixture are gone.

  7. When all the wontons are wrapped, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush or spray vegetable oil all over wontons, then line them up onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  8. Bring wontons into oven and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cool for 10 minutes.

  9. Serve with Thai sweet chili sauce and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you choose not to spray or brush oil all over wontons, a longer bake time is needed. Regardless, always oil the bottom of the wontons to prevent wontons from sticking to the pan.
