Pretty Pumpkin Wontons Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:40 servings


  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 40 wonton wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • DIP:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the pumpkin, cheese and salt. Place 1 tablespoonful in the center of a wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Moisten edges with water; bring corners to center over filling and press edges together to seal. Repeat.
  • 2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wontons in batches for 30-60 seconds on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine dip ingredients. Serve with wontons. Yield: 40 wontons (1-1/2 cups dip).

"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."
