This recipe makes about 25 fried rangoons. (You most certainly can bake them, although I haven't tried this so I can't give advice as to cooking times.)
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
Package of won-ton wrappers (found in ethnic or refrigerated section). Most have like 50 wraps, if you want to make that many just double the filling. If you have extra, you can freeze them for a month in a tupperware or zip-top freezer bag.
1 pkg cream cheese, softened. I like my filling very cheesy, so I buy the cream cheese in the 10 oz. tubs.
1 pkg (6-8oz) of surimi (fake crab). It's packaged conveniently, easy to chop, and muuuuch cheaper than the real stuff.
2 small green onions, chopped fine.
1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce
pinch of ginger
pinch of sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg yolk
fryer or deep saucepan
Step 2: Mix the Filling
Put the softened cream cheese in a bowl and beat it a little first, to make it more workable. I sometimes add about 1/2 a tablespoon of milk to speed this up. Then add all the spices and mix well.
Finely chop the surimi and the green onion. Mix those into the cream cheese also.
**If you have extra filling left at the end, chill it and use as chip dip. Yum!
