Baked or Fried Wontons Crisps?
Both cooking versions will yield a perfectly crunchy crisp! It’s your choice! This recipe uses the baked method, but to quickly deep fry wonton crisps, simply heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a shallow pan to 350F. Fry a couple of minutes on one side and use tongs to turn them over and fry them briefly on the other side. Place fried wontons on a paper towel to drain. Immediately sprinkle with cheese and parsely and then let cool.
How to Make Wonton Crisps
- Preheat oven. Melt butter and brush the baking tray (or parchment paper) with melted butter.
- Separate the wonton squares and cut diagonally from corner to corner to make two triangles.
- Place each wonton wrapper half on the greased baking sheet, making a rough square for the two halves. Brush the tops with more melted butter.
- Sprinkle with parmesan and parsley. Or you can try something completely different! Why not try black sesame seeds and sea salt? Italian seasoning? Or Ranch seasoning? This is your chance to make crackers that have a perfect topping, or do you prefer no topping at all?
- Bake and serve!

How To Store Wonton Crisps
Wonton crisps that are baked will keep longer than ones that are deep fried but they’ll both keep the same way. Keep wonton crisps in a ziptop bag, Stasher bags or an airtight container. Do not refrigerate! If they aren’t all gobbled up, they should last about ten days or so!
