“I got this recipe from, where it is called Easy Apple Pie Wontons. Well, when I was showing my husband and roommate the bag full of these wonderful treats in the freezer, they thought the way I described them was hilarious: "You just whup them out of the freezer and bake them up." So now they are Whup and Bakes. Yummy fresh from the oven, yummy frozen and baked (no thawing needed), yummy with ice cream. Thank you SusanV!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut apple into 12 to 16 slices, depending on the size. You will be able to figure out how many you need after the first wonton goes together, so you may want to cut the first slice, put together the first wonton, then cut the rest of the apple.
  2. Set up your work area: Wrap the wontons in a damp paper towel so they don't dry out while you're working. You will need a small bowl of water for sealing the edges. And you will need either a greased cookie sheet if you are baking them now, or an ungreased one for flash freezing.
  3. Place a wrapper on your work surface, sprinkle a tiny pinch of cinnamon and sugar in the middle and lay a slice of apple on top.
  4. Wet two adjoining edges, and fold the wonton wrapper in half diagonally. Press as much air out as you can and then press the edges together well to seal them. Place on cookie sheet.
  5. To bake, whether fresh or frozen, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the Whup and Bakes for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. NOTE: These can be made vegan, if you are able to find the particular brand (Wei-Chuan) of gyoza wrappers which are vegan. Gyoza wrappers are round, so they will end up looking like half circles.
