I recommend 370 degrees.
Cook Time/How Long to Cook
The wontons will need 7-10 minutes of cook time. Each air fryer brand will cook at varying speeds. Check-in on the wontons and fry them to your desired level of crisp.
How to Keep Wontons Crispy
Reheating them in the air fryer does the trick. After being sealed away and stored, they will soften some. You can reheat them in the air fryer, maybe add a spritz of oil if necessary.

Easy Air Fryer Wontons
- 1/4 cup crushed pineapple I used fresh, you can also use canned. You can add more than 1/4 cup if you wish.
- Combine the cream cheese, green onions, sweetener, and chives in a medium bowl. If you are making pineapple wontons, add the wontons here as well. Stir well.
- Grab your wonton wrapper and dip your fingers into the small bowl of water and then use your wet fingers to line the 4 edges of the wonton wrapper. You can also use a cooking brush. Depending on the brand of wonton wrappers you use, you may want to consider double wrapping, if they are extremely thing.
- Add 1 teaspoon to 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling to the middle of the wrapper. Do not overfill, the filling will leak from the wonton. Smooth the filling with a spoon or spatula.
- Seal the wrapper diagonally to create a triangle shape. Ensure the edges are moist. This will keep the wrapper sealed. You can also fold them in a rectangluar shape.
- Spray cooking oil in the air fryer basket. Load the wontons in the basket and spritz with oil. Don't overcrowd the air fryer basket.
- Air fry on 370 degrees. Cook for 8-10 minutes. I did not flip the wontons. Each air fryer brand will cook at varying speeds. Check-in on the wontons and fry them to your desired level of crisp.
- I usually see wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the grocery store near produce.
- If you notice white dusting on the air fryer wrappers, you can spritz those areas with oil, or coat them with an egg wash.
- I usually make a batch of 1/2 savory and 1/2 with pineapples using 1/4 cup of pineapple. Feel free to double that if making full batch with pineapple.
