Here's a great autumn dessert that's waist friendly. Apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and a nice crunch. Great alternative when craving apple pie.
- 2 medium apples, McIntosh, peeled, cored and minced
- 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with butter flavored 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. Serve with ice cream on the side.
I thought these were ok.. good but not great. I think it would be better to saute the apples and sugar before filling the wontons to create a nice saucy filling. The edges of the wontons are crunchy, but I didn't really enjoy that. It was crunchy the way uncooked pasta is crunchy, you know? I'm not sure I'll make these again without a few adjustments.
Made these for Chinese New Year's. I must have small wontons because I halved the recipe and had at least 24. We were stuffed! My apple was very large though. And I only cooked mine for 10-11 minutes because my first batch were very crispy.
These are delicious and not hard to make, I only got 18 wontons with that amount of filling amount nothing near 24 although I think I used more than a teaspoon of filling for each, thanks for sharing V!...Kitten :)
