  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
  • 2 green onions chopped top to bottom
  • 16 wonton wrappers
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Mix together cream cheese, garlic salt, and green onions.

  3. 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.

  4. Repeat for the rest of the wontons. 

  5. Place wontons on a nonstick cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spray wontons with a bit of cooking spray as well to help them brown. Bake for 7 minutes per side until brown and crispy.

Recipe Notes

  • These are best served warm so I would recommend waiting to bake them until right before you're ready to serve them. 
  • Wonton wrappers can be found in the product section typically by the refrigerated herbs and salad dressings in your local grocery store. 
  • My favorite cooking spray is Chosen Foods Avocado Oil cooking spray.  Not only is it delicious, but it's also healthy, and shelf-stable without additives or propellants (major brownie points!)
  • Softening your cream cheese by leaving it at room temperature 1-2 hours before you begin making this recipe will make the cream cheese all the more easy to mix and spread.
  • Speaking of cream cheese, I'm a big fan of Philadelphia. I think it's worth the little bit extra cost to use the brand name - you can taste the difference in quality.
  • Spray wontons liberally with cooking spray! Not only will this help prevent your wontons from sticking to the tray in the oven - it will also help ensure that you get that beautiful crisp browning on the outside that wontons are famous for.
  • Store bought sweet & sour sauce is perfect for these so be sure to pick some up when you're grabbing the rest of your ingredients needed to make these. If you don't find a store bought sauce that you like it's just as easy to make the sauce at home as well!
