Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package (12 ounces) wonton wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying

Directions

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, vinegar and soy sauce until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in pineapple. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in marmalade. Cool to room temperature.
Place 2 teaspoons of cream cheese in the center of each wonton wrapper (fill wrappers a few at a time, keeping the others covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use). Moisten edges with water; fold opposite corners together over filling and press to seal.
In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry wontons in batches for 2-1/2 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Serve with orange sauce. Yield: 4 dozen (4 cups sauce).
Editor's Note: Fill wonton wrappers a few at a time, keeping the others covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.
