  2. Fill wonton wrappers with approximately 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture each. Fold wrappers into triangles and press the edges with a moistened fork to seal.
  3. In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Drop 4 wontons at a time into the oil and quickly fry, turning once. Remove when golden brown and drain on paper towels.

I covered and baked these basted in butter so I wouldn't have to fry. Amazingly good!!!

These are a litte too cream cheesey for us, so next time I would cut back on that. I had a hard time finding wonton wrappers so I found some mini fillo shells in my grocer's freezer section. The...

Delicious! The only alteration I made was to leave out the green onions due to personal preference. I know these will be a big hit every time I make them. Edit to original review: We now bak...
