Air-Fryer Caribbean Wontons
I first served these fresh and fruity air-fryer wontons as an appetizer at a summer luau. My family and friends now enjoy this fried wonton recipe for dessert at special occasions throughout the year. —Melissa Birdsong, Gilbert, South Carolina
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 10 min./batch
Makes2 dozen (1-1/4 cups sauce)
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- 2 tablespoons canned crushed pineapple
- 1 cup marshmallow creme
- 24 wonton wrappers
- Cooking spray
- 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- Confectioners' sugar and ground cinnamon
- Preheat air fryer to 350°. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in coconut, banana, walnuts and pineapple. Fold in marshmallow creme.
- Position a wonton wrapper with one point toward you. Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use. Place 2 teaspoons of filling in the center of wrapper. Moisten edges with water; fold opposite corners together over filling and press to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
- In batches, arrange wontons in a single layer in greased air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and crisp, 10-12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place strawberries in a food processor; cover and process until pureed. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in pureed strawberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 2 minutes. If desired, strain mixture, reserving sauce; discard seeds. Sprinkle wontons with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon. Serve with sauce.
