Cream Cheese Wontons & Red Plum Sauce

The countdown to the Super Bowl continues with another cheese related recipe.  These wontons are so easy to make and much healthier than those gotten in a Chinese restaurant since they are baked.  The sauce basically makes itself.

Cream Cheese Wontons ~

30 wonton wrappers
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix together cream cheese and garlic powder.  Using a .5 tablespoon cookie dough scoop, fill half full and place in the center of the wonton wrapper.  Dip your finger in water (once for each of the 4 sides) and wet the edge of the wrapper.  Gently fold over into a triangle shape and press down on the edges.  Place on a greased baking sheet.  When all 30 are made, spray with cooking oil and bake for 10 minutes at 400°

Red Plum Sauce

1 - 18 oz Red Plum Jam
2 tbsp raspberry vinegar
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger

Put all the ingredients into a medium saucepan.  Stir occasionally over medium heat.  Cook until it thickens, about 20 minutes.  Serve warm.
