Yield:
4 servings, 3 wontons each
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 1 generous tablespoon orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Directions
  • In a heavy-bottomed, straight-sided, medium saute pan, add enough oil to reach at least 1-inch up the sides. Heat over medium-high heat.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the orange marmalade, ginger, cream cheese, cinnamon, and salt until very well blended. Fill each wonton with a rounded teaspoon of filling and brush a little water along the edges of the wonton dough. Fold in half diagonally and pinch the wontons shut, making triangles. (Make all the wontons before frying.)

  • Working in batches, carefully fry the wontons 3 or 4 at a time, just until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes, turning once. Remove the wontons and any blot excess oil on a paper towel. Allow to cool a few minutes before serving, as the filling will be extremely hot. Lightly dust with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.
