Dessert or Savory Wonton Recipes

Sunday, April 21, 2013
Have you ever gone into panic mode when some unexpected company arrives and you can't think of anything to serve quickly?


We have the perfect solution right here using filled wonton wrappers.


They can be stuffed with any of my numerous suggestions below from sweet to savory filled wrappers to make the best appetizer or dessert that take only a few minutes!


Seriously, there is no limit to all the creative fillings that can go into that versatile egg roll dough.


Sometimes I even fill mine with pepperoni, tomato sauce, and cheese and make my own little wonton pizza, a super easy and quick snack.


Premade wrappers are perfect anytime but of course, you can also try my homemade wonton wrapper recipe when you have the time.


Just scroll through this post and you will see some of my combinations for filling are and think about what kind of mini hot pockets you would like.


These can be filled and folded in triangles, squares, rolls, or any shape you prefer, I have even cut out the wrappers with a cookie cutter into heart shapes for Valentine's Day appetizers.


Canned or fresh fruits, pie fillings, and Nutella make a great filling for dessert wontons.


We love using egg roll wrappers and you may also like to try our Homemade Fried Eggrolls a little work but work the effort.


If you're having a party these are a great win-win with finger foods to serve


Just scroll to the bottom of the post and check out my printable recipe card for some ideas and recipes.

Cooking These Wontons

  • Here are some easy cooking methods to try: 
  • AIR FRY: spray the dessert or savory-filled wonton with cooking spray on the outside and then spray the basket.  Preheat the fryer to 350 degrees, place the filled wonton in the basket. Air Fry them until golden around 6 minutes
  • BAKE: place them on parchment paper and bake them until crispy around 12 minutes at 400 degrees
  • Pan-Fry:  heat some butter and saute until golden brown.




It can't get any easier than that and in minutes with store-bought or freshly made fillings, you can have a dessert in no time on your tables!

This is a recipe for a Nutella-filled wonton wrapper for dessert or Shrimp and Crab filled wontons for a savory appetizer. Check out these easy recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries
  • 2 teaspoons honey or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons Nutella
  • 6 tablespoons cream cheese softened
  • 6 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg mixed with 1 teaspoon of water
  • Whipped cream or powdered sugar for garnish
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish or powdered sugar
  • Cooking Oil Spray
  • For Homemade Wonton Wrappers:
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Place flour into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, salt, and water. Create a well in the center of the flour and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix everything together with the paddle from an industrial electric mixer, until the mixture begins to come together.
  • Knead for 3-5 minutes.
  • Cover the dough with a damp towel and let rest for 1 hour. Divide the dough in half.
  • Cover one-half of the dough with your towel.
  • Add some cornstarch on a cutting board (or whatever you use to roll the dough out on) to roll out your dough.
  • Roll half of the dough as thin as you can, forming a rectangle roughly 20”x10”.
  • Cut the sheet into your desired shapes. Usually, store-bought is 5 to 7-inch squares and are perfect for egg rolls.
  • I use 3-inch squares or circles for wontons or dumplings and desserts.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough. Use the wonton wrappers immediately or freeze.
  • For a Seafood Shrimp Rangoon scroll to the end of the card.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Raspberry Sauce:
  3. Mix the raspberries with brown sugar in a small saucepan heat to boiling.
  4. In a small cup add the cornstarch and some water to make a thin drizzle and add that into the hot berries and cook until thickened around 3 minutes.
  5. Assembly:
  6. On a cutting board, place a wrapper on the board, fill it with a little Nutella, and top the Nutella with softened cream cheese.
  7. Fold it like a triangle.
  8. Spray with cooking oil, then use some water to seal the edges or milk.
  9. Bake in the oven until browned and crispy or you can fry them in butter.
  10. Drizzle the top with raspberry sauce.
  11. Shrimp and Crab Ragoon Wonton Appetizers
  12. 15 wonton wrappers
  13. 9 peeled and deveined shrimp chopped (boiled or precooked)
  14. 1/4 cup chopped crab meat fresh or canned ( you can use the crab sticks I prefer not to since they get soggy)
  15. 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  16. 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  17. salt, pepper to taste
  18. pinch of cayenne pepper
  19. Topping:
  20. egg whites or milk

  22. Mix all together in a bowl. Using a wrapper, place a good amount (1 heaping teaspoon ) in the center of the wonton. Fold all four ends to the top joining together and sealing the edges like a flower with egg whites or milk. You can also just make triangles the same way.
  23. Either deep fry in hot oil or bake on parchment paper in a 400-degree oven.
