Apple Pie Wontons - Thanks Wonton Warrior
I love making wontons and trying all kinds of experiments with them. This is not an experiment since there are many recipes for wontons with apples. This one can be baked and it should have been baked. I have company coming, any minute and I did not want to be in the middle of waiting for my oven to heat up. Thus, I did something, I am not happy about, I deep fried them. This is the recipe for baked. If you want to fry them, heat up the oil (1 to 2 1 1/2 inches high) and drop them into HOT oil for less than a minute on each side. When they are golden, take out with slotted spoon and place on paper towels.
I found the second side needed only seconds to be done. Watch carefully.
2 medium apples, peeled/cored/minced
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
24 wonton wrappers
1 1/2 tablespoon powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon; toss to coat apples. Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Drop apple mixture by teaspoonfuls onto center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with wet fingers, fold over one corner to make a triangle and press sides together to seal. Transfer filled wrappers to prepared baking sheet and coat surface with cooking spray. Bake until wontons are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Place wontons on individual plates and sift with powdered sugar.
