I love fried wontons stuffed with just about anything! As we enter fall, these sweet wontons are a perfect ending to most fall meals.
12 wonton wrappers
2 large apples, I used pink ladies but a good Fuji or honey crisp would also work.
2 T arrowroot powder
1/4 c brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground cloves
1/2 t salt
4 cups vegetable oil
Place arrowroot, brown sugar and all the spices in a bowl. Mix well.
Peel and core the apples. Cut into fine dice. Toss the apples with the sugar and spice mixture.
Place a wonton wrapper on your prep surface. Put a rounded tablespoon of the Apple mixture in the center. Brush the edges with water and fold into wonton bags. Alternatively you can roll the wonton like a regular egg roll around the apple stuffing.
Heat 4 cups of a neutral oil in a pan or prepare your deep fryer according to its directions. When the oil reaches 350 degrees, gently place the wontons in the oil. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes when wontons are golden brown.
Drain fried wontons on paper towels.
Serve warm. Pairs well with caramel ornvanilla ice cream.
