Apple Pie Wontons
These little nuggets of apple pie love were the perfect afternoon treat this week after we all had a grueling day. Those first few weeks back to school kicks everyone’s booties.
Let me give you the easy recipe and show you had to make these. My mom use to make wontons with this delicious ground turkey filling when we were kids… so good! If you aren’t familiar with wontons they are a flour wrapper that you can fill with whatever filling you like…. sweet or savory the possibilities are endless. You’ll find it in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.
Apple Pie Wontons
- can of apple pie filling

- small bowl with some water
Super easy right?
How to Make Apple Pie Wontons
- First step is to lay out one of the wonton wrappers. I get a slightly damp paper tower and cover the rest of the wrappers until I need them (they can dry out very easily).
- Place a teaspoon size of apple pie filling in the center of the wonton. You don’t want to much or it will ooze out of your apple pie goodie.
- Dip your finger in the water and run your wet finger along the 2 edges closest to the bottom in the photo. You are creating the ability for the wrapper to stick together.
- Bring the top corner down to the bottom corner, press lightly on the matched sides to create a seal.
- Get some more water on your finger and dab the bottom corner of your triangle, then bring the left corner down and press it to the bottom corner to create a seal.
- Repeat with the corner on the right side until you’re left with this shape.
- Fill a pot with 2-3 inches of oil and heat on medium until you’re at 350 degrees. I’ll put a empty wonton wrapper in to test the oil. If it floats instantly with lots of bubbles and the bottom side browns within 30ish seconds you’re ready to go.
- Place your wontons in to the hot oil. Make sure you don’t overcrowd them. I cooked 2-3 at a time. They will cook in 60-90 seconds, so keep on eye on them.
- Once they are brown, remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate.
- Let the excess oil soak off for a couple minutes then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar).
- ENJOY!! They are best served warm!
They really are a bite of warm apple pie heaven! You’ll want to make a bunch because they babies will go quick! They make for a great dessert or after school snack.
