5-Ingredient Apple Pie Cream Cheese Wontons, crispy mini pies with a twist!
When I think of apple pie, I usually envision a ceramic pie dish with piles of apple towering over the top. Although I love classic apple pie, this fall I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of apple pie variations to shake things up.
One might say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
However, I don’t feel I’m fixing traditional apple pie. Rather, I’m using it’s essence and appeal to elevate other dishes.
Today that takes form in simple 5-Ingredient Apple Pie Cream Cheese Wontons. I’ve always felt cream cheese wontons were missing something.
Guess what… It was apples all along!
Here you’ve got the crunch and creaminess of cream cheese wontons with a bite of fresh apple pie filling to offer pop! This combination works extremely well together.
Think of it as a mash-up or fusion food… East meets West in itty bitty hand pie party poppers.
Bonus, if you missed it above, there are only 5 ingredients!
Granny Smith Apples. Butter. Wonton Wrappers. Cream Cheese. And the surprise ingredient it Apple Butter!
Musselman’s Apple Butter provides the sweetness and spice for the apple pie filling, so you don’t have to dig through your pantry for various spices, sugar, or flour.
We always have a jar (or two) of Musselman’s Apple Butter in the pantry.
I find all sorts of ways to add it in recipes to create richness and depth. Plus, Musselman’s Apple Butter is now made without high fructose corn syrup, so you can feel good about serving it to your family.
To make these crunchy Apple Pie Cream Cheese Wontons, simply saute diced apples with a little butter to soften them. Then add in apple butter to season the apples.
Lay square wonton wrappers on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place a scant cube of cream cheese in the center of each wrapper.
Then spoon a little apple pie filling over the top.
Dip your finger in water and run your finger around the edges of the wonton wrapper. Then gather the corners together and pinch.
Pinch the sides to seal the little pies, and brush the tops with butter.
