Ladies and gentlefolk, friends and foes, birds of the air and fish of the sea, all 100,000 hairs on my head… I have an announcement. I have found the answer to world peace: Pumpkin Pie Wontons with a creamy maple dip.
You may think this claim is outlandish, and I admit I thought the same when I first made a go of this recipe. “What could POSSIBLY be tasty about pumpkin-cream cheese filling wrapped up in a wonton fried to a light, crispy-brown goodness and then sprinkled with powdered sugar and dipped in a sweet maple sauce?” I asked myself. I mean—right? It was a mystery.
But then, when mine eyes laid upon my creation and a single dipped wonton was laid upon my tongue, I found that nothing in this universe could fathomably be more delicious, more amazing, more crowd-pleasing and therefore, world peace-ing than these wontons. Once you try them for yourself, you too will understand.
First, whip up your filling. This combination of pumpkin puree, cream cheese and pumpkin pie spice is only the yummiest thing you’ll ever taste in your life. No biggie.
Brush the edges of each wonton wrapper with a little egg wash.
Then place about a teaspoon of filling in the center.
Fold it over into a triangle and pinch the edges to seal.
Make sure those puppies are closed up really well, or else you’ll cry a river of tears when you see all the filling floating out of the wontons as you fry them.
Fry them up in small batches until they’re puffy and golden brown, just a few minutes on each side.
Mix up your creamy maple dip and dust the tops of the wontons with powdered sugar.
And devour. They’re the answer to world peace, in 30 minutes flat.
