October is my favorite month and some of my favorite flavors. I know everyone is pumpkin spice everything right now, but don’t forget to show the apples some love! These are easy to make and I bought the individual toppers instead of making a big can of filling for just the 3 of us. You can bake these instead of frying them, but since we had the fryer going I made them that way.
Apple Wontons with Caramel Dipping Sauce
(Adapted from Small Town Woman)
1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
24–30 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Empty can of pie filling on a plastic cutting board and coarsely chop apples in 1/2 to 1/3’s.
Scoop chopped up apples and filling into a bowl. Place a tablespoon of filling in the center of wonton.
Moisten four corners of the wonton lightly with water on fingertip and bring up four corners and pinch together. Do not worry about gaps. Continue until all the wontons are full.
Pour oil to a depth of about one inch in a heavy stockpot. Heat to 350 degrees. Working in batches using tongs place apple wontons in oil pinched sides up. Cook 60-90 seconds or until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on paper towels pinched sides down to drain.
Add butter, whipping cream, brown sugar and vanilla to the saucepan over low heat. Cook until brown sugar is dissolved and sauce is combined & warm; stirring frequently.
Serve sauce with apple wontons.
