Pretty Pumpkin Wontons

This is a sensational, easy recipe, great for an appetizer, snack or dessert. The flavors meld beautifully and everyone loves it. I made it up after having squash ravioli at a restaurant and I wanted to make my own twist on that idea. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California

    40 wontons (1-1/2 cups dip)


  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin

    I was really dissapointed with this recipe. My husband and I really love pumpkin, but found the actual wontons to be flavorless. The dip was really sweet... My suggestions would be to add some spice to the pumpkin mixture, and for the dip, cut down on the amount of preserves and confectioner's sugar..

    These were so easy to prepare! Everyone who has tasted them loves them and I always get asked for the recipe. The sauce really completes the wontons, by themselves the wontons are OK but once you put that sauce on they are AMAZING!

    NIce and easy Recipe, if you have a fryer :)but the sauce complements the wontons, the only tweak I did was sprinkle them with a little cinnamon & sugar when they came out of the fryer.
