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