  • Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray. Fill a small bowl with warm water.

  • Place 12 wonton wrappers on a clean work surface. Spoon 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Dip index finger into the warm water and wet around the sides of each wonton wrapper. Crimp wrapper corners upwards to meet in the center to form dumplings.

  • Place dumplings in the prepared basket and spray the tops with cooking spray.

  • Cook dumplings until desired crispness, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • While first batch is cooking, assemble remaining dumplings with the remaining wrappers and filling.

  • Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping.

Cook's Notes:

You can use imitation crab instead of lump crab meat.

The dumplings can be made ahead and frozen for later use. Place uncooked dumplings on a baking sheet, making sure they are not touching. Freeze for 2 hours or until solid. Transfer dumplings to a freezer-safe container. Dumplings can be cooked frozen in the air fryer but you will need to add 3 minutes to the cook time.

No changes. Will make again, but I'm going to try shrimp in place of the crabmeat. My only problem was folding them properly.....no matter though, try certainly tasted good! Read More

These were quite tasty! I made them with real crab, but they would also be good (dare I say maybe even better) with imitation crab. I made the first batch without spraying oil on the top of them, and they were not the right texture. I sprayed them with oil for second batch, and I sprinkled a little bit of garlic salt into one of them. That one was much more flavorful and delicious than the originals, so I put garlic salt in the rest of the filling. Yummy! Do not over stuff these. I put more than the 1 tsp of filling called for, but they often busted open during cooking. The ones with less filling remained intact. Read More

First batch I sprayed the top with cooking oil cooked them 5 minutes and they came out a little crispier than I would have liked. Second batch I did the same but only cooked them 4 minutes. Better but still too crispy. Third batch I didn't spray the tops and cooked them for 5 minutes. Perfect! Read More
