So in my quest to be “healthier” I found this twist of the traditional FRIED cream cheese wontons. It was only a minor change, I BAKED them! I had wonton wrappers in the fridge for the Pot Stickers that are on my list to make… I knew I wouldn’t need them all, and with the Orange Chicken I was making for dinner tonight I really wanted wontons (they are one of my fav appetizers). I’m glad I ran across this, they were delish!
Baked Cream Cheese Wontons
These Baked Cream Cheese Wontons are the perfect appetizer. With a cream cheese filling, you'll love these nearly guilt free finger foods even more because they are baked!
- 4 oz. cream cheese softened
- 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
- 2 green onions chopped top to bottom
- 16 wonton wrappers
- Pam cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix together cream cheese, garlic salt, and green onions.
Place about 1/2 tsp. cream cheese mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Wet your finger with water and moisten the edges of the wrapper. Fold wonton in half to make a triangle, sealing the cream in the wonton well. Moisten one corner of the wonton with more water. Bring the bottom edges of the wonton together, overlapping slightly.
Repeat for the rest of the wontons.
Place wontons on a nonstick cookie sheet sprayed with Pam. Spray wontons with a bit of Pam to help them brown. Bake for 7-12 minutes or until brown and crispy.
