Apple-Cinnamon Wontons

Back in the old dieting days, I printed off a bunch of Weight Watchers recipes from their website with the grand idea that I would try them all and they would be delicious and good (or better) for me. I did try a few and some were rather amazing, while others were just…very diet-y. One that I did discover and love are these apple-cinnamon wontons. They look pretty fancy and are not a lot of work, especially if you have a food processor.

I brought these over to my friend’s house and while they weren’t as popular as I had hoped, Carrina’s husband couldn’t stop eating them. So that’s a very positive review. I think they’d be a little crispier and maybe a bit better tasting if melted butter/coconut oil or the like were used instead of cooking spray. Again, this is a WW recipe and they look to cut corners wherever they can. The original recipe calls for them to be served sprinkled with powdered sugar and with ice cream. While I don’t usually do anything with powdered sugar, these really are nice with a good vanilla ice cream.

Apple-Cinnamon Wontons from

Serves 6 or works great as part of a dessert platter

Cooking spray
2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and minced
1 Tb. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
24 wonton wrappers, about half of a 12 oz. package

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon; toss to coat apples. Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Drop apple mixture by teaspoonfuls onto center of each wrapper. Moisten edges with wet fingers, fold over old corned to make a triangle, and press side together to seal. You may have to push down a lot and press in the center. Be careful not to overfill. When it says teaspoon, that’s just about perfect. Transfer filled wrapped to prepared baking sheet and coat surface with cooking spray.

Bake until wontons are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve with ice cream if you choose or just gobble them up.
