  1. Mix all filling ingredients together. Do not overbeat, if some small grains of cream cheese don't want to mix, that's ok, the cheese will melt.
  2. Lay wonton wrappers on a clean, dry surface, with points facing you, and paint the outer edges with a stripe of beaten egg at least one inch wide.
  3. Place one tbsp of the mix in the center of the wrapper.
  4. Fold the wonton in half point-to-point to make a little triangle which encloses the filling.
  5. Press edges firmly and pinch them so the eggwash will make them stick.
  6. Paint outsides with eggwash.
  7. Fry in an inch of hot oil, turning once, until golden on both sides.
  8. Remove, drain, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  9. Serve hot on a puddle of thin caramel sauce.

Wow, great recipe! I am glad you posted this. We love Oriental food and the fusion of pumpkin and our favorite food has won me over. I was making these for someone, and got to taste one and by golly I think its a winner. Not too sweet and the taste is not overpowering. It is a very humble recipe and I LOVE IT! Suggestion to what to serve along side: Cool Whip with cinnamon! YUM! Love this and will be making them again VERY soon.

I made about 9 servings, which made about 6 wontons, of these and really enjoyed these. I added a about 1/4 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg each and just left the sugar out. Also I sprayed these with cooking spray then I baked these for about 475 F until they were crispy instead of frying to make them a bit more healthier. These were a great treat! I plan on making these again with some assorted fruit filling tomorrow.
