Cinnamon Nut Dessert Wontons



As part of our Chinese New Year celebrating, I decided to try this recipe for dessert wontons. They are sooooooooo good! And the best part is they're soooooooo easy!! I think they took me about 10 minutes to make. Yep, that's it. So, I thought I'd share the recipe with you, courtesy of an old issue of Everyday Food. The recipe below makes 12 wontons, but I just used a random amount (whatever I had leftover after making dumplings!) and tweaked the ingredients accordingly. It's not a fussy recipe where everything needs to be just so. Anyway, here's what you do:

Ingredients:

-12 wonton wrappers
-1 T melted butter
-3T sugar (I used brown sugar for extra yum!)
-1/4 C finely chopped almonds (we used pecans, which were also delicious!)
-1 1/4 C fresh strawberries, sliced
*optional: dash of cinnamon (my own add-in!)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place wonton wrappers on rimmed baking sheet and brush with melted butter.


mmmm...butter :)




Sprinkle with sugar, nuts (and dash of cinnamon, if using).



Bake in oven until golden brown and crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Be careful to get this just right. If you pull them out too soon, they're chewy, but if you wait too long they'll burn rather quickly. That's the only slightly tricky part of the recipe, but it's not too bad. Just don't, you know...go vacuum or dust or something while they're baking (not that *I* would ever be in danger of doing either of those things anyway! Ha!).



This is what they'll look like when they come out....Ooo-la-la! Crispy deliciousness!


Transfer to wire rack (or be lazy like me and pop 'em onto a plate instead) to let cool. They cool very quickly--about 5 minutes.


Top with sliced strawberries and enjoy! Feel free to plop a big ol' dollop of whipped cream on there, too...or yogurt, or honey, or cottage cheese...whatever floats your boat, really! But they're great even with just the strawberries, trust me. :)


See, wasn't that easy?!



If you decide to give them a try I'd love to know about it! :)
