Shrimp and Goat Cheese Wontons



I was shopping at our new Whole Foods market and got inspired by all the artisan cheeses. I had some leftover wonton wrappers to use up, and this is what I came up with, and only 4 ingredients!

Ingredients:
1 package square wonton wrappers, thawed
1/8 lb small pink cocktail shrimp
good quality herbed goat cheese at room temp
1/4 brick of cream cheese at room temp

Method:
Mix together as much cream cheese and goat cheese as you wish to make wontons. On each wonton, you will need to wet your finger with water and go all around the edges, this will help it seal properly. Add a teaspoon or so of the cheese mixture and a few shrimp to each wonton. Fold over and seal, trying to get all the air out.

Cook on a non-stick pan in the oven at 350 for 10 to 13 minutes. I also sprayed the wontons on both sides before baking with pan spray to help them crisp up (these are normally fried and I wanted to make them a bit more healthful)
