Ingredients

For the Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar

For The Raspberry Filling

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 14-16 wonton wrappers
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar optional for dusting

Instructions

For the Raspberry Filling

  • In a small saucepan, add raspberries, lemon juice, and sugar.
  • Hear over medium heat until sauce begins to form, stirring frequently.
  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water together, then add to raspberries. Stir until thickened then remove from heat and let cool.

For the Cream Cheese Filling

  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and creamy.

Making the Wontons

  • Place a few wonton wrappers on a clean surface and add a spoonful of cream cheese mixture to the center of each wrapper followed by a spoonful of raspberry mixture.
  • Dip finger into water and lightly moisten all of the edges of the wrapper to help seal the wontons.
  • Grab all four corners and pull them up and closed. Make sure to remove most of the air before sealing.
  • In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add 5-6 wontons at a time and fry until golden brown on all sides, approximately 4-5 minutes. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan so the temperature of the oil stays the same.
  • Once the wontons are golden brown, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and place on a plate lined with pepper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  • Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
