Apple Bourbon Cream Cheese Wontons

27 12 2013

Found this idea on pinterest and was excited to try it for Christmas dinner. Stuffing and forming is a little time-consuming when you’re making for a crowd, but I like serving mini desserts like this at dinner parties, so I thought it was worth it.

Apple Bourbon Cream Cheese Wontons

The following makes 40 (adapted from lab@56):

  • 4 medium size apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Kentucky Bourbon
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 (12 oz) package wonton wrappers
  • About 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • Water for sealing wonton wrappers
  • Oil for the cookie sheet
  • 2 large egg + dash of water for egg wash
  • Confectioner’s (powdered) sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350.

Mince apples with a knife or process them in a food processor with a chopping blade.

In a medium size bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, and sugars. Whisk lightly with a folk to combine. Add apples and bourbon; mix again until apples are well coated.

Heat butter in a medium sauté pan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium once butter is melted and sauté apple mixture, about 5 minutes. Stir constantly with spatula to prevent from burning. Turn the heat off and set aside. You can make the mixture a day in advance and store covered in the fridge at this point.

Put 1 cup of water in a shallow bowl. Place 1/2 teaspoon of cream cheese, then 1/2 teaspoon of apple mixture on top of cheese. Dip 2 fingers in water and wet all edges of wonton wrappers. Fold the wrapper over to form a triangle, then press edges to seal.

Place filled wontons on lightly oiled cookie sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush some egg wash on top.

Bake them for 15-20 minutes in preheated oven until golden. Slightly cool wontons at room temperature and dust with powdered sugar.
