  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 egg beaten
  • oil for frying
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives optional


  • Combine the cream cheese, sugar and onion powder.  Stir until well mixed.
  • Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and drop a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center. Brush the edges of the wonton with the egg.
  • Bring 2 opposite corners together in the middle of the wonton and pinch. Repeat with the other 2 corners and pinch to form a package shape.
  • Repeat with the remaining wontons and cream cheese until all are filled.
  • Heat 4 inches of oil in a deep pan to 350 degrees F.
  • Fry 5-6 wontons at a time, turning them as needed to make sure they brown evenly. This process should take about 3-5 minutes. 
  • Drain the cooked wontons on paper towels and repeat the frying process with remaining wontons.
  • Sprinkle with chives and serve immediately with dipping sauce of choice.


  1. You can fold the wontons however you like, here is a guide on how to fold wontons 10 different ways.
  2. Be sure to use a frying thermometer to make sure your oil is at the correct temperature; if it's too hot the edges of the wontons could burn.
  3. I serve my cream cheese wontons with a side of sweet and sour sauce or Thai sweet chili sauce.
