Cream Cheese Wontons are the ultimate party food. They are fried and dipped in our homemade sweet and sour sauce. This favorite appetizer will be the hit of every party!

We might say this for every season, but winter really is our favorite time of year. Snow fell on the ground, Christmas decorations were hung, we were always sipping a cup of hot chocolate or cider, and there were lots of parties with family and friends.

Everyone needs a good holiday party recipe, and this one can’t be beat. Cream Cheese Wontons are that party food you only hope to buy in the freezer section of the grocery store, but once you make your own, you’ll never go back to the store to buy them. These are really good.

Cream Cheese Wonton Frying Tips:

  • Pay attention to the oil temperature. Use a thermometer, if available. Do not let the oil overheat.
  • Put oil in the bottom of a skillet or high sided pot. This will cause the oil to pop and splash over the sides of the pan, not on you or near any flames.
  • Carefully lower the item into the oil. Do not drop them as they will splatter and the oil will burn.
  • Be sure to seal the wontons completely so the filling doesn’t leak out. Make sure there are no air bubbles. If the filling overflows or the air pockets burst, you’ll get nasty splatter.

Can I use store bought sweet and sour dipping sauce?

We prefer the homemade variety, but you can always substitute if you’re pressed for time or have a favorite store-bought brand.

Freezing Instructions:

Cooked wontons can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Reheat at 325°F for 10 to 15 minutes. Don’t try the fried frozen wontons.

  • While the oil is heating, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer until fluffy and smooth.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and water to make an egg wash. Lightly brush both sides of the wonton wrappers with egg wash. Top each wonton with about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese. Fold the diagonal corners of the wontons into the middle, and repeat with the remaining corners. Knead and make sure to remove any air pockets.
