Chinese food with Cream Cheese

cream cheese wontons from CopyKat.comCream Cheese Wontons are a favorite in many Chinese restaurants. These are so easy to make at home and with this recipe I can show you how you can recreate your favorite recipe at home.

There are a few items I love when I got to a Chinese restaurant. While these may not be authentic in any sense of the word, they are definitely a favorite of most everyone who tries these. These are actually fairly simple to make. You will need wonton wrappers that are sold in the produce section of grocery store. The filling is made with cream cheese and a touch of sugar. You will need a simple egg wash to seal the wontons together.

You may want to serve these with some Sweet and Sour Sauce. I can show you a great recipe for sweet and sour sauce that is easy to make, this recipe actually has lemons and oranges in it. You may not need to go out for these anymore with this simple recipe. These would also go great with some hot mustard.

When filling the wontons it is a good idea to place a damp towel over the wonton shells. They can dry out if you do not keep them covered.
