Cream cheese wontons are my FAVORITE Chinese take-out appetizer. I get them every time. EVERY time.

They are just so creamy and delicious and addictive. When you get them out though they are normally fried.

So, this version is ever so slightly healthier but, I mean with a filling made from mostly cream cheese and sour cream… what do you expect? lol.

Either way, these are super simple and go together in less than 20 minutes. I think this would be an amazing appetizer to serve at a party!

The filling for these is super simple. Just 6 ingredients, cream cheese, sour cream, scallions, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and sugar.

Baked Cream Cheese Wonton Cups Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a wonton wrapper in the divets of a muffin tin, pressing them down to form cups. Bake for 8 minutes.
  • While wontons are baking, make the filling by creaming everything together. Evenly divide filling among the 12 wrappers.
  • Bake an addition 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Garnish with more scallions. Serve with sweet and sour sauce (recipe coming soon!).

These are easy to adapt to your tastes.

Alternatives and Add-Ons:

If you really like a garlic punch, instead of the powder, add a minced garlic clove to the mix.

Add cheddar cheese for an even cheesier bite. Or, a diced jalapeno would go so well with these!

You can also deep fry them if you wish. Here are the steps for that:

  • You will use slightly less filling for these. Place about 2 teaspoons filling in a wrapper.
  • Take a little bit of water and run it along the edges of the wonton with your fingers. Close the wonton, making a triangle. Press the edges together to make sure they are closed.
  • Fry in 350-degree oil until just golden brown, drain, and serve.
