More About This Recipe
  • Say hello to spring with these sweet pea pockets.

    Do you see it there on the horizon? It’s SPRING! Okay, actually it’s probably already happening wherever you live, unless you live in an especially chilly region.

    For me, spring means bright colors, fresh flavors and party food. That’s why I love these simple sweet pea wontons so much. They check all the boxes! Plus, they’re super easy to make.

    They start by lightly mashing together peas, mint and a pinch of salt. The mint really makes the wontons pop with flavor, so don’t skip it!

    Besides that, just whisk together the eggs and water for your egg wash and you’re ready to assemble.

    Okay. These can be a bit of a patience-tester, but put on some tunes and you’ll be done in no time.

    Add a small spoonful of soft cream cheese and pea mixture to the center of each wonton wrapper.

    Dip your finger in the egg wash and run it around the edges of the wonton. Then fold the wonton over to form a triangle. Fold the corners under to make a nice little wonton packet.

    Repeat until you’ve ran out of wrappers, cream cheese or pea mixture. You’ll probably get around 40!

    Then brush the wontons with the egg wash. This will help them brown and give them a nice crust.

    Bake the wontons at 375ºF for 15-20 minutes, until they are nicely browned around the edges. There’s really no need to flip them or anything.

    Let these cool before you chomp into one of them.

    The slightly sweet peas, cream cheese, and crunchy wonton wrapper is the perfect springtime combo!
