Thanks, Pioneer Woman, for this great recipe. We made them last night as a snack. Ate them so fast that I forgot the photo!!!
Ease in preparation: fair…someday I will get the knack of folding those wrappers!!! I ended up just doing my own thing. (Maybe that’s why there is no photo).
Always wanted to try Sriracha and finally had the opportunity to do so. That hot sauce is in the filling and dip. I was very careful and didn’t add a lot but…maybe next time I will.
The dipping sauce is really tasty and not hard to make.
CREAM CHEESE WONTONS
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 green onions, chopped
1 T. Sriracha
Blend above with a mixer or by hand. Set aside.
24 wonton wrappers
Fill individual wrappers with only about 1 t. cream cheese filling.
1/2 c. water
Mix egg with water and use to moisten all edges of wonton. Roll up the wonton over the filling. Fold in the sides. Finished product should look like a tortellini.
Heat a few inches of vegetable oil in a pan. Temp should measure 350 degrees F. Put in several filled wontons. Do not crowd. Watch carefully for browning on the other side and turn over. Remove to a paper towel to drain. These are still very hot for a few minutes so…control yourself and mix the dipping sauce instead. The filling should be HOT and MELTED.
2 T. soy sauce
3 T. honey
1 t. rice wine vinegar
1/4 t. sesame oil
1 T. Sriracha
Mix all above while the wontons cool. Dip and enjoy!!!
