This is a recipe my friend Kym showed me - and I have been making it ever since!! It's great with my Sweet and Sour Meatballs, teriyaki/bento, fried rice you name it. I serve this as an appetizer when I have guests with a little sweet chili sauce - YUMMY!! Vary amounts depending on the number of wontons you want - the filling is great spread on French bread with cheddar cheese and baked open face too!!

How To Make
*Soften cream cheese on counter while prepping onions and cooking mixture.
In skillet sauté onions, butter, crab with garlic powder (if using), salt and pepper until onions are translucent.
Immediately stir hot mixture into softened cream cheese until thoroughly mixed and creamy.
Spoon small amount of mixture into middle of each wonton.
Moisten fingertips and apply to edges of wrappers, then press together to close forming a triangular shape (folded in half).
Bring outer tips together and press to loosely form a pointed fortune cookie shape.
Heat oil in skillet (medium to medium high), and place wontons in hot oil.
Turn a couple of times until all sides are lightly golden brown.
Watch closely as they will turn dark very quickly. ;)
When done place on a paper towel lined plate to drain; repeat until all are cooked.
Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping. Enjoy!! :)
