Dessert Won Tons
I FINALLY made the cream cheese and strawberry dessert won tons that I have been talking about for days! They were delicious and they looked so cute, as you can see in the photo above.
I used the basic recipe from Diana at www.dandeliongreensblog.com. Basically I just put a dollop of light cream cheese and a little bit of strawberry preserves in the middle of a won ton wrapper (bought at Harris Teeter in produce section). Moisten the edge of the won ton with a little bit of water and then fold over to make a triangle. Heat 5 or 6 in vegetable oil on medium until they just begin to get light brown. If you like them crispier, heat longer. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Serve warm.
