“Desserts Fruit Oriental Vegetarian Asian While looking for something different to make for a party I came across this. I was surprised my the outcome. This does take time to make but I hope it is worth it for you.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Original called for 2 tablespoons of butter to cook fruit inches.
  2. For filling, in a medium bowl toss together pears, apples, cherries, and lemon juice.
  3. In a large skillet cook fruit mixture in the 2 tablespoons butter or margarine over medium heat about 7 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat; stir in Marsala or apple juice, nuts cinnamon, and ginger. Cook for 3 minutes more or till liquid has evaporated, stirring often. Stir in syrup; set aside.
  5. For each wonton, spoon about 2 teaspoons filling into the center of a wrapper. Lightly moisten edges of wrapper with water.
  6. Fold top edge of wrapper over filling to opposite edge, making a half-moon. Press edges together to seal.
  7. Arrange wontons on a greased baking sheet. Brush with the melted butter.
  8. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if using. Bake in a 350F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or till golden. Cool slightly. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if using.
  9. NOTES : I made these tonight. I reduced the initial amount of butter and it was fine. I tried spraying them with butter flavored spray instead of brushing them with butter and they would have been better with the butter. I also used bigger, square wontons and folded them diagonally to make them like turnovers (made 6). They were very tasty. Serve with some fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt and they would be a great lowfat dessert.
  10. Fruit-and-nut-filled wontons add a subtle finish to the evening meal.
