Shrimp Won Tons are fabulous!  Homemade won tons are so much better tasting than purchased one, plus they are so very easy to make.  I consider a steaming bowl of won tons welcome in any time of the year, plus making them at home is an easy process.  They taste like a restaurant treat, but they are quick and easy to make at home.  These homemade Won Tons will definitely impress your family and guests and be a crowd pleaser.

Lightly dust a baking sheet with cornstarch.  Unwrap wontons and keep covered with a moist cloth.  Fill wontons one at a time.  Place 1 teaspoon of shrimp filling on one side of wonton wrapper.  Moisten edges with water.  Fold wrapper diagonally over filling to form a triangle.  Firmly press to seal sides.  Place on baking sheet.
