Apple Pie Cream Cheese Wontons

Apple Pie Cream Cheese Wontons

Yield: 24 wontons

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large granny smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, divided
  • ¼ cup Musselman's Apple Butter
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 24 square wonton wrappers

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Line one large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet and set over medium heat. Add the diced apples and sauté for 5-8 minutes, until the apples are soft. Then stir in the apple butter and remove from heat.
  3. Cut the cream cheese into 24 scant ½ inch squares. Melt the remaining butter for brushing. Set a small bowl of water close by for dipping.
  4. Brush a small spot of butter on the prepared baking sheet. Place one wonton wrapper on the melted butter. Top the wonton with one cream cheese square, followed by one teaspoon of apple filling.
  5. Dip your finger in water and paint a thin line of water around the square edges of the wonton. Pinch two opposite corners of the wonton together. Then gather the remaining corners and pinch together in the center. Pinch all open seems closed.
  6. Repeat with the remaining butter, wonton wrappers, and fillings until you have 24 sealed wontons. Brush the remaining melted butter over the tops and sides of each wonton to help the wontons crisp up in the oven.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the wontons are golden and crunchy. Cool for 3-5 minutes before serving.
NOTE: You can usually find wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the produce department.

    Sounds yummy and easy. Can these be made as is but without the cream cheese to make them dairy free?

    What a great idea! I can almost taste these right now. Will have to make ASAP just to be sure they are as good as I think they are!

    Just curious if I missed a step. My wontons only crisped at the very top point, and were otherwise a bit tough and leathery. Should they have been steamed a bit first, and/or just browned on all sides in a skillet? Filling was delicious.

      Hi Patricia,

      That can happen if the wonton wrapper doesn’t get a good brushing of butter.

    OMGoodness—Musselman’s has removed the HFCS?! I loved apple butter as a kid, but have not eaten it in years because of the high fructose corn syrup. I will be looking for a jar this grocery day. These little “pies” look wonderful!

    I would think this recipe could be made as small fried pies if folded in half instead of like a little purse. I love you recipe and creativity.

    Can you prepare these ahead of time, refrigerate, and cook them right before serving?
