Crafting the Perfect Wonton Cups

  2. Brush and Tuck: Brush or mist both sides of each wonton wrapper with vegetable oil to keep them supple. Gently tuck the wrappers into the bottom of each well in the cupcake pan, ensuring they form a cup shape.

  3. Bake to Perfection: Pop the pan into the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until the wonton cups until they are crispy and golden brown. Keep an eye on the bottoms to ensure they don't burn.
