Panda Express Cream Cheese Wontons are a tasty side dish available at Panda Express. I like how they dont pretend these are Crab Ragoon. These are the creamy and crunch wontons you would often find at your favorite Chinese Food Buffet.


Cream cheese 8 Ounce , softened
Scallions (green and white) 1 Tablespoon
Wonton wrappers 1 Packet
Shortening/Cooking oil 2 Cup (32 tbs)



1. In a medium sized cooking pot, heat enough vegetable shortening or cooking oil to fill 2 to 3 inches.


2. Cream together cream cheese and scallions together. If desired a touch of garlic powder may be added for additional flavor.

3. Take a wonton wrapper and spoon approximately 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into it.

4. Fold wonton by brushing a little water over all of the edges of the wonton skin.

5. Fold wonton diagonally unto a triangle. Be sure to seal all of the edges completely, this will keep the filling from running out of the wonton when being cooked.

6. Next take the two furthest ends and press and twist those together. You may need to tuck together the two end pieces by adding a little water. Follow the video for the method.

7. When the oil is heated, you can use a thermometer and test to see that it is 350 degrees, or you may test with a small piece of wonton skin.

8. If the wonton skin bubbles immediately when dropped into the hot oil, it is ready.

9. Drop only 4 or 5 pieces into the hot oil.

10. After about 1 minute the wonton will begin to brown, it will now brown rapidly, remove it when it is lightly browned.

11. If your oil is shallow, you may need to flip over the wanton before serving.


12. Serve with a sweet and sour sauce.
