As a change from the usual pumpkin pie or cake, we created these deliciously different wontons. The butterscotch sauce would also taste great over ice cream. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"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!!!"

"@ 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!"
