maple & goat cheese wontons

I don’t know about you but if I’m at a Chinese restaurant, there is a good chance I’m getting cream cheese wontons. I’m not sure what it is, but I just can’t resist them. Crunchy on the outside, creamy cheese on the inside and just plain good.

But what about a sweet twist on the typically savory? I had some honey goat cheese in the freezer and just had a feeling that with some maple crystals, that I had been wondering what to do with for quite some time, this could be transformed to a delicious treat.

Unfortunately baking doesn’t give it that same crispy shell as frying does, but maple goat cheese trumps cream cheese any day. ;)

Maple & Goat Cheese Wontons - 4 pieces

  • 2 Tbsp honey goat cheese (or plain)
  • 1 Tbsp maple granules
  • 4 wonton wrappers
  • real maple syrup

Pre-heat the oven to 375° F.

Mix the goat cheese and maple granules together until smooth, heating in the microwave for a few seconds if necessary. Lay out 4 wonton wrappers on the counter, and have some water handy. Place 1/2 Tbsp of filling in the center of each wonton. Wet the edges with water and fold in half so that it forms a triangle. Pinch edges together to form a seal. Fold bottom corners in and pinch together.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Drizzle with maple syrup before serving if desired.

    I just made a goat cheese and honey muffin last night and they were great! I am going to have to give these a try as well since I have a recent obsession with goat cheese.

    You had me at goat cheese! I’m not a fan of cream cheese, but I love me some goat cheese, especially combined with something sweet.

    I did not know that you could freeze goat cheese….thank you for THAT, I can now go stock up at Trader Joe’s (cheapest in my area for goat cheese)! And…the wontons look FABULOUS!
