5 Sweet Cream Cheese Won Tons & Sweet 'n Sour Sauce


This is one of my favorite Chinese food appetizers.  It is simple and easy to throw together.

Mix room temperature cream cheese with minced green onion and a little sugar.

Put a dollop in the middle of a won ton square.  Dip your finger in a bowl of water and use it to trace all along the sides...


Pinch the corners to seal and it's ready to fry!


How cool is that?

I made this along with our Valentines Dinner:  General Tsao's Chicken, brown rice, ham fried rice, and egg drop soup.  There was no room for dessert; none was needed!

Dip this in a sweet 'n sour sauce and call this dessert.

Enjoy!
