“I found this recipe at several different Asian websites and it seems like it might resemble a turnover. NOTE: Cherry dessert wontons can be assembled and frozen. To use, let thaw for 10 minutes and then fry.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To assemble wontons, place approximately 1-1/2 Tsp Cherry Pie Filling (2 cherries plus sauce) in the center of each wonton wrapper.
  2. Moisten the edges of each wrapper, bring one corner up over the filling to the opposite corner at an angle so that two overlapping triangles are formed.
  3. Pull the two bottom corners of the folded triangle forward so that they meet one another and slighly overlap.
  4. Moisten one end and pinch the two ends firmly together; repeat.
  5. Pour the oil into a deep fryer and heat to 375 degrees F.
  6. Deep fry the wontons, 8 to 10 at a time for about two minutes or until crisp and golden.
  7. Drain on paper towels.
  8. Fried wontons can be kept warm for about one hour in a 250 degree F. oven or reheated for 5 minutes in a 450 degree F. oven.
  9. Powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar can be sprinkled on the fried wontons, if desired.
