Easy Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce
Wonton wrappers are easy to find at any grocery store, and definitely at specialty Asian markets. At my grocery store(s), the wonton wrappers are located near the produce, at the end of the aisle in the refrigerated section. You need 36 wonton wrappers for this rangoon recipe, so make sure you check the wrapper count. Depending on the brand of wontons wrappers you purchase, you may need one or two packages.
Cooked cream cheese wontons can be refrigerated but I do not recommend refrigerating uncooked wontons. Wonton wrappers dry out very quickly and will become brittle when refrigerated if they have not been cooked, which will cause them to tear and leak when baked or fried. It is better to freeze uncooked wontons instead (see section below).
Instead of refrigerating wontons which will dry them out, you can freeze them instead! To freeze wontons:
Yes, these cream cheese wontons freeze beautifully! Freezing the wontons creates a fabulous easy- snack/appetizer option for all those busy parties or nights.
