{ Cooking Thursday }

Here is today's recipe....these are really good, usually they're supposed to be fried but we're still watching our diet and I thought it best to bake them, they turn out just as good :)

Rub some water on two sides of the wrapper, then fold over to firmly seal, forming a triangle, and gently press out any extra air pockets. When the oil is hot, place 6 wontons at a time into oil. Cook about 1 minute per side until golden and crispy.

Makes 24 wontons
