I absolutely love the Fall season, especially all the wonderful desserts that are baked at this time of year. There is nothing quite like the amazing smell of cinnamon and apples to make your home feel warm and cozy. I've made these cinnamon apple wontons with chocolate and walnuts to bring out that tart apple pie flavor along with the sweetness from the chocolate. These wontons are baked so they are much healthier than your typical fall dessert, but just as delicious. You can serve them with a side of ice cream or frozen yogurt.
2 medium Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and minced
1 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 Tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 Tsp ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp toasted, chopped walnuts
4 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
about 30 wonton wrappers
1 1/2 Tbsp powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, chocolate chips, walnuts and cinnamon; toss to coat apples.
Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Drop apple mixture by teaspoonfuls onto center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with wet fingers, fold over one corner to make a triangle and press sides together to seal.
Transfer filled wrappers to prepared baking sheet and coat surfaces with cooking spray.
Bake until wontons are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Place wontons on individual plates and sift powdered sugar on top.
