Wonton Cups with Cream Cheese and Chutney


When the usual hors d'oeuvres get boring, try these easy wonton cups for a change of pace.

Source: Everyday Food, April 2006


  • 12 rectangular (3 1/2-by-3-inch) wonton wrappers
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 bar (3 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup jarred mango chutney
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 walnut halves, broken into pieces
  • Sliced chives, or scallion (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stack wonton wrappers and, using a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut into rounds. Working with 3 rounds at a time (and keeping the remaining covered with a damp towel), spread them out on a work surface; brush one side of each wrapper with oil.

  2. Tuck rounds into nonstick mini-muffin cups, oiled side up; press down to fit into bottom and sides. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly before removing.

  3. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, chutney, and mustard. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cream-cheese mixture into each cup; garnish with chives, if desired, and walnut pieces. Serve.

Cook's Notes

For crispy wonton cups, use a dark-colored mini-muffin pan, which will help brown them faster and more evenly than a light-colored pan would. Store cups in an airtight container up to 2 weeks; freeze up to 2 months. Wonton cups may also be filled with guacamole, chicken salad, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, or pesto and ricotta cheese.

    This is an easy and good recipe. I thought it was weird that it is for only 12 appetizers. I think most people will end up doubling it.

    VERY simple...tastes good and is different from the usual appetizers.....looks sweet...easy to eat...not too messy....mustard seemed a bit over powering.....will try it next time using no dijon mustard at all..then adding a little if needed....definitely needs the crunch of the walnut and color of the chives.....husband even liked it.....cups can be prepared and frozen...mixture is easily and quickly piped in using a squeeze bottle with a wide nozzle opening..
