Baked Cream Cheese Wonton Cups, better than takeout and ready in under 20 minutes! These handheld appetizers are fun for game day, holidays, or just to have as a side to your favorite meal!

Cream cheese wontons are my FAVORITE Chinese take-out appetizer. I get them every time. EVERY time. When I say every time, I really mean that.

They are so creamy, delicious, and irresistible. The only difference between these Wonton Cups and regular Wontons is when you get them out though they are normally fried and closed together.

This version is ever so slightly healthier and easier, I mean with a filling made from mostly cream cheese and sour cream what do you expect? 

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

I loooooove appetizers and easy, you know me by now that those two words are my favorite. So this recipe is perfect in my opinion and we make them any chance that we get.

It’s an easier way to get your fix at home rather than going out or ordering in when you can make these at home and they taste pretty much exactly the same!

Some of my other favorite appetizers we have on our site include: Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, Asian Marinated Grilled Shrimp Skewers and Roasted Shrimp Cocktail.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED CREAM CHEESE WONTON CUPS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Place a wonton wrapper into each divet in the muffin tin, and press down to form a cup. 
  2. Bake for 8 minutes.
  3. While the empty wonton cups are baking, make the filling. Place the cream cheese in a medium-sized bowl. With a hand mixer, beat until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine. 
  4. Evenly distribute the filling between the 12 wonton cups. Place back in the oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. 
  5. Garnish with more scallions. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

ALTERNATIVE 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!

These are a great recipe to create the flavor that you are looking for. It’s more of a base recipe and you can create fun flavors using this recipe.

CAN I MAKE THESE INTO NORMAL WONTONS?

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

  1. You will use slightly less filling for these. Place about 2 teaspoons of filling in a wrapper.
  2. 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.
  3. Fry in 350-degree oil until just golden brown, drain, and serve.

HOW TO STORE:

These unfortunately do not last that long. You can store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 day otherwise you run the risk of them getting soggy.

TIPS AND TRICKS:  

  • If you do decide to make the deep-fried version you will need more wonton wrappers.
  • Make sure that your cream cheese is softened so when you mix your filling together there are no lumps.
  • This is a great base recipe to create different flavors.
  • Easily double this recipe to serve more guests.
  • Make sure you are using wonton wrappers and not egg roll wrappers, egg roll wrappers are much larger.
