APPLE CREAM CHEESE WONTONS

Servings: Yields 24 wontons
________________________________________
1 Granny Smith apple, chopped, roughly 1 1/2 cups
1 package wonton wrappers, 12 oz
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package cream cheese, 8oz
Vegetable oil for frying
For the sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
METHOD:
________________________________________
1. In a small saucepan melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add chopped apples, cinnamon, and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until apples are soft and sugar has dissolved. About 5-7 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and place in a medium bowl. Add 1 package of softened cream cheese and vanilla; stir well to combine.
3. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into wonton wrappers and fold inward to form 3 points. 1 teaspoon of filling per wrapper is adequate.
4. Heat vegetable oil to 375° in a wok or large skillet. There should be 1-2 inches of oil in the skillet. Place wontons into the heated oil and cook 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate.
5. Meanwhile, combine butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir rapidly until sugar is dissolved. Cook for 3-4 minutes until mixture thickens and is caramel in color.
6. Sprinkle wontons with powdered sugar and serve hot.
