sweet dessert wontons

This is a great dessert after any Asian meal or as a pass around for a party. It's super easy to make when you buy prepared wonton wrappers and canned pumpkin, but tons of other fillings would work well too, especially anything that is good in pie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 16 packaged wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray

  • Optional garnishes: cinnamon and sugar for dusting, chocolate sauce, whipped topping

Preparation

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, mix pumpkin, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.

2 Place one wonton wrapper flat on work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon filling into center. Moisten edges of wonton with water and fold in half to form triangle. Press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wontons.

3 Arrange filled wontons on un-greased baking sheet. Lightly coat wontons with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle each with sugar and cinnamon (if desired).

4 Bake until golden, about 16 minutes. Turn and bake 2 more minutes. Set baking sheet on wire rack to cool. Serve alone, with chocolate sauce or with whipped topping.

5 Optional: if you prefer them to be extra crispy you can lightly pan fry in oil.
