You can do a couple of different things with cream cheese wontons. I personally do not like them with only cream cheese inside. So I add crabmeat. You can do the same, or make your own with only cream cheese. Or try both. See what you like best. I do not use canned crabmeat. I use imitation crab and shred it before mixing it with the cream cheese. It's not that canned crabmeat doesn't work, it's that I like the leftover imitation crab to put in salads, eat as a snack, etc! I have always folded my wonton wrappers exactly the way the package tells me to. So don't throw away the little card inside the wonton wrapper package until you have looked it over. Also, I like to make all the wontons first, and then fry them in small batches. That way, I don't burn any of them.
1 8oz box of cream cheese
1 cup of crabmeat, shredded1 package of wonton wrappers
a little bowl of water (to seal the edges of the wrappers)
oil for frying
Mix together the cream cheese and the crabmeat. Put a heaping teaspoonful of cream cheese mixture in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Dip your fingers in the water and brush the water around the edges of the wonton wrappers. Fold the edges over to seal closed. Fold the wonton according to package directions. Fry in oil until golden brown. Put on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Continue wrapping and frying until all the wontons are done. You can serve them with sweet and sour sauce or whatever your favorite is.
