Cream Cheese Wontons

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
12-15 wonton wrappers
water for sealing
oil for frying

In a bowl combine cream cheese, green onions and ginger.
Season to taste with salt.

{To assemble bites:}
Lay one wonton wrapper on a flat surface.
Spoon one teaspoon of mixture into the center of the wrapper.
Dip your finger in the water and run along the edges.
Bring all sides together in the center, pinch just above the filling to enclose filling.
Carefully twist to close.
Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.

2 inches of oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
Once oil starts to shimmer, drip a small piece of a wonton wrapper in the oil, if it sizzles its ready.
Working in batches so you don’t over crowd the pan, fry bites until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
Allow to cool for several minutes before serving.
