Fried Cream Cheese Wontons

These wontons make a great appetizer that's  delicious and easy to make. I made these several times for my husband and his friend. They absolutely love them every time. 

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 can water chestnuts, drained and chopped finely
1/4 teaspoon salt
wonton wraps
1 eggs plus 1 egg beaten
oil for frying

1. Combine cream cheese, green onions, chestnuts, salt and 1 egg in a medium size mixing bowl. Mix well. 

2. Brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with egg; put a teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper, then fold the wrapper in half, diagonally, shaping into a triangle. Seal the edges well.

3. Heat oil to 375F degrees and fry the wonton until golden brown. Remove and drain excess oil on some paper towel. Serve warm or at room temperature.
