Creamy Pumpkin Wontons


We tend to think of wontons as a savory wrap but it works as well with sweet fillings.  Since, I made chocolate wontons, I knew this was my secret weapon for interesting desserts.  Chop up some apples. Add a little sugar and use that as a filling.  Try a little marshmallow cream with a few chocolate chips.  Use your imagination and bring variety to the dessert table.

Creamy Pumpkin Wontons

Ingredients:

30 - 40 wontons
1 small can of pumpkin
3/4 cup of cream cheese
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

hot oil about 1 1/2 inches deep in saucepan (large)


Method:

Heat the oil in a pot or deep frying pan.

Lay out the wontons. 


Put water around the edges of one wonton, at a time. 

Put a small amount of cream cheese on the wonton.

Top with a  small amount of pumpkin.

Fold into a triangle and seal by pushing around the entire edge with your finger. Continue doing 3 or 4 of these.

Drop a few at a time into the hot oil.

Turn over after a minute or when it is light brown.

Cook another minute. Drain on paper towels.

You can sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Eat and enjoy.
