Cherry Pie Won Tons

I had an open package of won tons and needed a quick dessert the other night so I made these cherry pie won tons. I started with a can of tart cherries I had gotten from King Orchards. They are just cherries, so I sweetened them and added vanilla, thickened them a little a made what amounts to cherry pie filling. The nice thing about starting with plain cherries is that I was able to control the amount of sugar I added. I am not a fan of overly sweet desserts. I placed a small amount of filling in a wonton and moistened the edges of the wonton with water so it would seal. Some I rolled up like little egg rolls. I also made some more like ravioli, placing filling in the middle and pressing a second wonton on top of the first. I fried them in a minimum amount of oil in a small pan and dusted them with powdered sugar before serving. It was a great last minute dessert. You could just as easily use frozen cherries or fresh cherries, pitted.

Cherry Vanilla Filling

1 can (15 oz.) plain tart cherries

3 T. cornstarch

1/2 c. sugar

2 t. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Allow to cool before using in wontons.

oil for frying

powdered sugar

Place wonton on work surface and spoon in a little of the pie filling. Moisten edges and press to seal. Try to press out any air as you seal the wonton. Helps keep them from splitting.  Heat oil to 350 degrees. I use a small pan so I don’t need much oil. Place a few prepared wontons in at a time and cook until golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Cool a little before serving. dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
