Fall Baking Series: Apple Cinnamon Wontons

Full disclosure: my mom made these delicious little buggers. I just hovered behind her with my camera, snapping pictures and sneaking tastes.

They’re like bite-size slices of apple pie. I recommend serving ‘em a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I bet these would make a great dinner party dessert; you could prepare them ahead of time, and just pop them in the oven as guests finish dinner. They’re definitely best when warm.

Ingredients:

  • Two medium-sized, fresh McIntosh apples, peeled, cored, and minced
  • 1 Tbs. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 24 wonton wrappers (half of a 12-oz package) (found these in the produce section)
  • 1.5 Tbs. powdered sugar

Directions:

1). Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

2). In a medium bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon; toss to coat apples.

3). Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Moisten edges of wrapper with wet fingers. Drop apple mixture by teaspoonfuls onto center of each wrapper. Fold over one corner to make a triangle and press sides together to seal. Transfer to baking sheet.

4). Bake about 15 minutes. Sift powdered sugar on top.

And, if you’re a weight watcher, I can report that these are only 3 points for four wontons. Or, 6 points for four wontons and a half-cup of vanilla ice cream.

My friend Carmela makes a delicious version of these with nutella and a banana slice. So many possibilities.

  1. OOOOO! Yummy!! Perfect for fall too :) Love the smell of cinnamon filling the kitchen when its getting chilly out. Also, wonton wrappers are so versatile and convenient, love ‘em! Such good idea to make little mini-pies out of them.

    • Thanks, Britta! This was my first experience with wonton wrappers, but they are so versatile. I want to try out a ravioli recipe with them.

  2. Oh these look fab!! Love the banana and nutella idea. I bet they’d be great with berries.

  3. YUM!

  4. Umm, I’m making these immediately! They look soo good!

  5. OH wow, these look fabulous! I see a lot of people putting pumpkin in them, but I’m not a fan, this is much more up my alley!

    • Thanks! I’m not sure how the pumpkin would come out. I think it’d be too overwhelming. The best part about the apple mixture is that it’s just the right amount of sweet.

  6. Those look AMAZING!!!! I have a coupon for some free wonton wrappers so I need to get some and make these!

  7. Those look delicious. I like that they seem “fancy” to serve at a party, yet they seem easy to make!

  8. These look so adorable and delicious! Perfect for entertaining like you said, you could make them well in advance and just warm them in the oven. Wish I had this recipe before the bachelorette party I hosted this weekend! Haha

  9. Yummy. I’m so into these. How fun that you got to bake with your mom!

    • Thanks, Kate! It was fun baking with Lynn. She does the work and I reap the rewards! Muahaha. But for real, she is the baking master and could bake circles around me. Chocolate-covered circles.

  10. These look awesome- I love an easy baking project!

  11. Yum! I’m thinking some nice caramel sauce over that ice cream would be great. A nice splurge! xoM

  12. Let us all take a moment to giggle at how funny the word “wonton” is.

  13. Apple, Cinnamon – Oh My! Looks delicious – thanks for sharing – simpler way to get to the apple pie and bite size to boot:) Have a Great One!

  14. Oh gosh these are making me so hungry!!!! I must find somewhere that does wonton wrappers in Edinburgh

  15. Oh wow, how delicious! It almost makes me sad I’m not going to be home this weekend to try them out!

  16. why didn’t i think of using wonton wrappers this way?! sooooo coool! and there are so many filling options.. pears…dates… or maybe even nuts ….yum!

    i think the scariest movie for me would be silence of the lambs… it still creeps me out :S

    • Thank you! The wonton wrappers truly are so versatile. I want to try the banana/nutella combo asap. Also, Silence of the Lambs is SO creepy. A good choice!

  17. These looks absolutely amazing – thanks for the recipe!

  18. wow
    I love it

  19. Would these be okay to make early in the morning and then warmed up later that night? I don’t know if they would get soggy, etc.
    Also, do the apples get soft in the oven? Or should I cook them on the stove first?

    • Hi Danielle! Thanks for stopping by. These will probably lose a bit of their crispiness when you reheat them; one alternative would be to eat them cold instead of zapping ‘em. I bet they’d still taste good from the microwave though.

      As for your second question, because the apple bits are so small, they do get soft in the oven! No need to cook first :)
