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 Time
    Prep: 30 min. Cook: 10 min./batch
  • Makes
    2 dozen (1-1/4 cups sauce)

Ingredients

  • 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
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Confectioners' sugar and ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 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 1 point toward you. Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use. Place 2 teaspoons 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 on greased tray in 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.
