Cranberry Cream Cheese Wontons!!

Okay! So it's true, everything I ever cook ends up being something sweet and usually some sort of dessert. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

A couple days ago, we went to Azia for drinks and ended up ordering something called Cranberry Puffs. They were SO. FREAKING. GOOD. So good in fact, that I knew my craving for more would perhaps never be sedated, and I decided to make some of my own.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Wontons

1 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup cranberries
1 tablespoon milk
1 package of wonton wrappers
1 egg white
oil for frying

In a blender, mix the cream cheese, cranberries, and milk as best as you can. It's difficult to completely blend the cranberries completely so don't even try. It wont matter once it's fried up. Take the wonton wrappers and add about two teaspoons of the mixture and dab it into the middle.

Put a touch of egg white on all four corners and fold it into a triangle. Don't put egg white on all the sides, it's okay if it doesn't close up completely.

Then fry 'em up! Till golden!

Then eat them all! You can eat them with some sweet and sour sauce or with soy sauce if you want, but I liked them plain. You can also share with others, but I think next time they're all mine.

I made these yesterday and added some cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet paprika, and a touch of garlic. This made them even more flavorful and unique. But i also used corn oil since it has a higher peak temperature. I liked the texture it gave them, but please do not use it if you are making a lot. Which I was. Now my pot is all brown and burned.

I think I liked the ones fried in veggie oil instead of corn oil. But that might have been because I had the ones you made less fresh.
