Sweet Cheese Wontons

Stephanie Vandenburg


Sweet Cheese Wontons are my FAVORITE item at any Chinese buffet. Most people get them confused with crab rangoon, but these wontons have no green onion or crab in them, just a sweet, yummy cream cheese mixture.

How to Make Sweet Cheese Wontons


  1. Mix the cream cheese and the sugar together in a bowl until nice and creamy.
  2. Next, with damp fingers from the water, place a wonton wrapper on a clean surface. The dampness will make them easier to get apart. Wonton wrappers can be found in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store.
  3. Spoon a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture right into the center of the wrapper.
  4. Get your index finger wet, and brush the edges of the wrapper with the water - this will help the wrapper stay closed. Fold the wrapper into a triangle shape.
  5. Heat 1 1/2 inches of cooking oil (I use canola) in a frying pan or wok over medium heat until a drop of water dropped in sizzles.
  6. Place about six wontons into the oil (depending on the size of your pan) and let them cook for about 1 1/2-2 minutes each side, until they are golden brown. Place them on a paper towel to cool. Repeat for the rest of the wontons.
  7. Let the wontons cool and serve!
