This is the only way I will eat cream cheese. I thought I would try it, because I love won tons and the kids love cream cheese. Try it, it's onolicious! I usually use a little bit of beaten egg to seal the won ton skins into their package shape.

I have used this recipe several times with great success! I don't use the clams in the filling just the cr. cheese and spices. I also bake at 350 for 15-20 instead of frying in oil. I love to crimp the tops and make the flower shape like you get in Chinese restaurants. Thanks for the post! Read More

I made these and used crabmeat instead of the clams. My kids couldn't get enough of them! Read More

SOOOO good, super easy. I used my deep fryer for these, they tasted better than in restaurants because I put in a lot of filling, (in restaurants they tend to skimp on the filling) FYI, to seal the wonton shut, wet your fingertips with some water and trace the edges of the wonton, then seal them shut.

We call these crab rangoons. They were just as good as the ones we get in the Chinese restaurant. Read More

Excellent recipe! I've never done wontons before but they came out excellent! After reading the reviews here I used crabmeat the first time but the other flavors overpowered it - so I used clams the second time and it was much better. (I should have just followed the directions the first time!) Read More

These are delicious!! I make these for parties and I serve them with sweet and sour sauce and bbq sauce and they're GONE as fast as I can fry them. I have also added shredded cooked chicken to the cream cheese mixture heavenly. Read More

A very good recipe. I had never worked with wontons before. You certainly do need to use one lightly beaten egg plus 2 tbsps water as a "seal" for the edges. I also used a fork to seal it in a pattern similar to ravioli. This is a good base recipe... once you try it you'll add more and new ingredients to make your wontons unique. Read More
