It probably goes without saying that I do most of the cooking in our house. Even before I had a blog, and before I was on pinterest, I would spend hours and hours surfing recipes and categorizing them into folders on my computer. But there are a few things that Patrick makes, and he makes them well, really well. Pasta (he lived in Italy for 2 years serving a mission), pasta, and pasta, steak, pigs in a blanket, and cream cheese wontons. Patrick would always bring his famous wontons to New Year’s Eve parties or any other get togethers and they would fly off the plate!
Aside from Patrick’s wontons, I used to devour them at my local Pick Up Stix whenever I had the chance. I could never get enough of the crispy wonton outside giving way to warm, oozing, melted cream cheese inside. So good!
I wanted to mix up the traditional wonton and create pockets of crispy, creamy tropical paradise, so I added crushed pineapple, coconut, ginger, green onions and sriracha to the cream cheese and made my own easy pineapple sweet and sour sauce. Does that sound like paradise to you?! Also, instead of frying the wontons (which you can totally do if you prefer), I decided to bake them instead. After biting into a baked wonton, Patrick questioned, “These are baked?! You can’t even tell the difference!”
If you have never made wontons before, you are in for a treat! I was intimidated at first because Patrick was the one who always made them, but they turned out to be so easy!
Remove from the oven and you have crispy on the outside, pineapple, coconut creamy inside wontons!
Dip your wontons in the easy Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce…
And then dip and bite and dip and bite some more because these triangles are baked!
Then close your eyes and relax into crispy creamy paradise.
