Hello! How was your weekend? We had a pretty mellow one here, which was perfect right before all the crazy busy holiday activities begin. The weather was a bit chilly and wet, but that didn’t stop Hunter and I from having some fun at the park one morning.
Yes, that’s a wet backside. The slide being wet didn’t stop us from going down it. The water actually made us go down extra fast which was so fun! My pants looked the same, but I won’t show you a picture of that.
I made these fun little wonton turnovers on Saturday too.
All you have to do is cook your chopped apples in a very small amount of sugar + cinnamon, put it inside the wontons and bake. Easy as that!
The one downside to using wontons is that the corners did get a little sharp, which took Jacob by surprise when he took his first bite. But after you know to watch out for the sharp corners, they are perfect little bites. I skipped the extra glaze and thought they were perfectly sweet just the way they turned out. There is a little bit of cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top of the wontons before baking too which I made sure to include. It is a dessert after all, but one that you can actually feel good about since it’s mostly just apples!
Apple Pie Wonton Turnovers
from Jenny’s Cookbook
Makes 12 turnovers
- 1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced (small)
- 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp natural cane sugar
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
- 12 wonton wrapper
- melted butter or cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees f and line a baking sheet with parchment.
- In a small pot, cook the apple with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for about 5 minutes, or until soft.
- Place 12 wrappers on the counter and divide the apple mixture among them.
- Use a little water around the edges of the wrappers, then fold them into a triangle. Press along the edges to seal them. Brush melted butter on both sides (or use cooking spray).
- Combine remaining teaspoon of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the turnovers.
- Bake for 6-10 minutes or until they start to turn golden.
How was your weekend? Do you use wontons often and in non tradition ways? I’ve love to hear of some new ideas for using up my leftover wontons!
