This recipe is courtesy of The Cheesecake Factory.

We freshly prepare our dressings and sauces in each of our restaurants, but you can find good quality substitutions in most supermarkets and specialty stores. Excellent recipes can also be found in various cookbooks.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 ounces sweet and sour chili sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 4 ounces crab meat
  • 2 ounces sliced water chestnuts, minced
  • 1 ounces green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 ounces fontina cheese, grated
  • 1 ounces panko breadcrumbs
  • 25 small square wonton wrappers, approximately 3-1/2 inches

Directions

Place the cream cheese, Sweet and sour chili sauce, mustard, chili garlic paste, lemon juice, and granulated sugar into a mixing bowl. Fold the ingredients together until thoroughly combined.

Add the crab meat, minced water chestnuts, and chopped green onions into the bowl. Continue folding the ingredients together until thoroughly combined.

Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese, fontina cheese and panko breadcrumbs into the bowl and over the other ingredients and continue folding gently until thoroughly and evenly combined.

Place the wonton skins onto a clean work surface or cutting board. Place a 1/2 ounce of filling onto the center of each wrapper. Lift the bottom and top flat edges of the wrapper up over the filling. Pinch the center sections of the top and bottom edges tightly together. Lift the left and right flat edges of the wrapper up over the filling. Carefully pinch the center sections of the left and right flat edges tightly together with the pinched center section of the top and bottom edges. When done correctly, the edges will remain slightly open at the 4 corner points, forming a flower-like shape.

Pour a generous amount of vegetable oil into a sauce pot or deep frying pan/skillet and the heat oil to 350 degrees F. Carefully place the wontons (a few at a time) into the hot oil and fry them until they become golden brown and crispy. 

Arrange the crispy crab wontons on a serving platter with extra sweet and sour chili sauce on the side for dipping.

Cheesecake Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Cheesecake Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
