How to Make Cream Cheese Wontons in an Air Fryer
To make cream cheese wontons in an air fryer, you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 package wonton wrappers
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
To make cream cheese wontons in your air fryer, start by preheating the air fryer to 400°F. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, sesame oil, soy sauce, salt, and pepper until the mixture is well combined.
Next, take one wonton wrapper and spoon 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center. Dip your finger in some water and moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper, then fold the wonton over the filling and press the edges to seal.
Continue this process until all of the wontons are filled. Place the filled wontons in the air fryer basket, making sure to leave some space between them. Cook the wontons for 5 minutes at 400°F. When the wontons are golden brown and crisp, they are ready to serve. Sprinkle with some freshly chopped parsley and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
For a different flavor, you can add finely chopped jalapeños, green onions, or any type of shredded cheese to the cream cheese mixture. You can also brush the wontons with a little oil before air frying for an extra crispy exterior. Finally, for more flavor, mix a tablespoon of soy sauce with a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of garlic powder and brush the wontons with the mixture before air frying.
