Reviews for Pumpkin Wontons with Butterscotch Sauce
"These are great!! I also made them baked. Brushed a little melted butter with maple syrup over the top, sprinkle lightly with a little sugar and bake. Either way, they're fantastic."
"Fantastic recipe! My family and I made these last night as a 'test run' for Turkey Day. They have definitely made the cut! I did make a couple minor adjustments though. I am not a huge sweets fan, so I added one extra ounce of cream cheese, doubled the gingerroot and added a bit of nutmeg. The result was amazing! Sweet, but not too sweet - and just the right amount of zing.I did cheat on the sauce. I ended up buying a jar of butterscotch caramel sauce, warming it up a bit and drizzling it over the wontons. YUM YUM YUM!!!This recipe is super easy and fun for the whole family to make. My boys loved them!!!"
"So, so good! Excellent recipe! Don't know why some people have to be so rude to others. Shame on you!"
"Delicious!!! Everyone loved them. I'd make them again in a heartbeat."
"Loris kitchen....who really cares? This isn't a gripe session website, this is a recipe website...so, you are not using it properly either....practice what you preach!!! What is the big deal anyway? Maybe you need to look for a "chill pill" recipe..."
"@ marthalynnchr: You need to read my entry again because you STILL DON'T GET IT. Your post: "OMG! I am so making these for Thanksgiving! blah blah blah"... Again YOU CAUSED THIS RECIPE TO HAVE A LOW RATING AND HAVEN'T EVEN TRIED THE RECIPE. Perhaps YOU should go to another website since you don't know how to properly use this one!"
"I will make this recipe for Thanksgiving. It sounds great with the homemade butterscotch sauce."
"How would i go about making the "strings" that are shown on the recipe picture to garnish these wontons? Thank you."
"OMG! I am so making these for Thanksgiving! Thank you for sharing~"
"Lori's kitchen, Don't be such a b****! If you don't like what is being said, then go to another website...NO ONE needs your attitude!!!!"
"I really liked this recipe. I am a diabetic and like low carb desserts. I like small portion desserts so I made half a batch with these changes. I used fat free cream cheese, 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar and 1/2 tbsp. Spenda. I didn't make the sauce, but used a little drizzle of sugar free maple syrup. I don't know the calorie count because of the oil for frying. I will make these again. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"So yummy!! I watched The Chew, and the famous Cake Guy made these, I saw this recipe and made these...they are the best."
"Lori's Kitchen: - are you kidding me?? Have you EVER baked before in your life???? I am so tired of people using the "rate and review" tab as a BLOG! You guys caused this recipe to have a "60% would make again" and a very low 3 star rating and NOT ONE OF YOU HAS EVEN TRIED THE RECIPE!!!! I'll type slowly now so you can understand: the "rate and review" button is for people who have tried the recipe to share their opinion of how they liked or disliked the recipe."
"Lori, when you combine brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, and baking soda, and cook it ~ that makes butterscotch."
"You can bake them and not fry them. Wontons are good baked! try 350 oven for 5 to 10 minutes."
"i haven't made this yet but i am wondering if there is a way to bake them instead of frying. this sure sounds good. donalee2"
"Would anyone care to tell me where the BUTTERSCOTCH comes into play??? There is not one word in this recipe about butterscotch except for the title of the recipe. Take a close look at the recipe... Just sayin'"
"interesting!!! sounds like a sweet different dessert"
