Cream Cheese Wontons

What's fun is trying out different folds and shapes of won tons you can make ravioli shapes, triangles, or even little purses, I adore cream cheese won tons for dessert and company always enjoys this bite-size dessert . Won ton wrappers can be found in the produce section in most grocery stores, near the tofu.

1 8oz pkg cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 pkg won ton wrappers
1 cup raspberry or strawberry preserves for dipping ( lemon curd is also good for dipping)
oil for frying
water for sealing the won tons

1. Heat oil in a pan at medium-high heat.
2. In a medium sized bowl mix together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and egg until creamy.
3. Place a won ton wrapper on a flat surface and moisten the frame of the won ton.
4. Put a small spoonful of filling in the center of the won ton wrapper and fold however you like just make sure you seal the edges really well, you do not want any yummy filling escaping.
5. Add won tons to the pan and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, they cook very quickly.
6. Heat fruit preserves in a microwave or over the stove until warm
These can be served warm or cold. Dip them in the warm sauce.
