    These were just delicious! I made these for an Asian themed feast birthday party and everyone devoured them. Sorry no picture, they just disappeared way too fast! Definitely a keeper :) thanks. Made for ZWT 6 Queens of Quisine!

    I made these for friends dropping in and they were scrumptious for sure. I added a little garlic and parsley to the seasoning and then used my steamer to heat them. The texture was awesome and the taste was very very good. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing! ~V (Next time, I need to make more, these went so fast) I also made a little mixture of soy sauce and sugar to dip them in. YUM!

    I made these to have some appetizers on hand for those Friday after work drop in for cocktails. These were very good. Instead of deepfrying them, I lined the wonton wrapper in a mini muffin pan and sprayed them. Then added the filling. Twisted the tops of the wontons. Baked them at 425 for about 5-8 minutes. Just until they started to brown. Then I took them out and they were great. The fillng is really good. Next time, I will add just a bit of parsley, and maybe some roasted garlic to smooth out the edges a bit. But overall the recipe is great. I froze all but the two I ate to try. Since I have frozen them, I have reheated in oven and they do taste just a good as the first ones. Thanks Mommy Diva. A keeper!
