Cinnamon Wonton Cookies

Have you ever been surprised by a visitor?  Has a niece or nephew or grandchild ever stopped by, unexpectedly?  Your closest friend invites herself to dinner and you have no dessert.

You have choices:

  • Take time and go to the store and buy something - did I say buy?  We are foodies?  Are we allowed to buy?  Seriously, we are and we should realize that rather than beat ourselves down, doing more than possible in less time than needed, we must buy dessert or anything else, that is needed.
  • Frantically, try to make a strawberry shortcake or chocolate mousse.  After all, if you are going to do, you want to do it right, no shortcuts, no mixes,-------complicated and fantastic but draining on you.
  • Make wonton cookies or pie shell cookies.  Decorate them or serve them with a dip.  Takes little time and little effort.  Crunchy flavored crisps.
Cinnamon Wonton Cookies

Ingredients:
20 wontons
1/2 cup sugar
1 - 3 teaspoons cinnamon (I like it heavy)
spray cooking oil

Method:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut each wonton into two triangles.
Place on cookie sheets in a single layer.
In a small bowl or a cup, mix the cinnamon and sugar.
Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on triangles.
Spray lightly with cooking oil.
Bake for 6 minutes until golden.

Take a bite.

There is no reason you could not dip these in melted chocolate or sprinkle sprinkles on these cookies.  Your imagination must be your guide.

  1. Sounds similar to something I made years ago using flour tortillas. Must revisit and try with wontons!

  3. These remind me of cinnamon sugar pita chips...and given how addictive THOSE are, I'm sure these are equally so!

  4. I usually keep a frozen quickbread on hand for these situations, but these would make an excellent snack even when company doesn't unexpectedly drop in.
