Sweet Cheesecake Wontons By Erika Kurtz

Tasty Won Tons

Here is my recipe for Sweet Cheesecake Wontons. This recipe is great to serve for dessert with an asian meal! Waaay better than green tea ice cream ;)” – EK

-1 package Wonton Skins
-1 stick of Cream Cheese (you can use low fat, fat free, whatever)
-1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
-1 egg
-vegetable oil
-strawberries, blueberries, peaches, chocolate chips, honey, caramel, etc (your favorite cheesecake toppings)

Chocolatey Goodness

-Cut fruit up into small pieces
-Blend cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla
-Crack egg into a separate bowl and beat lightly
-Separate individual won ton skins and lay in rows on a cutting board
-Brush edges of wonton skins with beaten egg. This acts as a seal when you close your wontons and keeps them from opening up while frying.
-Fill wontons with a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture, a few chunks of fruit, or some chocolate chips. Mix  it up! Fill one with strawberries and chocolate, another with peaches and honey.
-Once filled, fold wontons closed, press and seal edges.
-Coat bottom of a skillet with a few tablespoons of vegetable oil and heat to medium high.
-Place wontons (as many as you can fit in the pan) in the pan and fry to a golden brown, flipping once with kitchen tongs.
-Lay a few paper towels on a plate to place fried wontons on to cool. Serve immediately!

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
