Mini Apple Pie Wontons Recipe
If you are looking for a fresh take on a traditional dessert, I suggest you make your very own apple pie wontons. These are easy to make and there is very little preparation needed. They are also healthier than regular apple pie: all you need to do is skip out on using the fatty crust on apple pie and use wonton wrappers instead. If you have a loved recipe for apple pie, you can use that recipe for the filling and just follow the rest of the steps here to transfer your recipe into apple pie wontons.
When I make apple pie, it always takes a long time because of the crust. I make my own pie crust and rolling it out and fitting it in the pie plate is a very tedious task (in my opinion). While I don’t plan on giving up on apple pie, I do like to use this simple recipe from time to time. It’s a lot of fun to make and it cuts down on the time. I love this recipe because it’s really fast and so easy that your kids can help you make them. It’s also a lot of fun to load the wontons up with apple pie filling. Since they’re bite-sized they make great snacks and are perfect for a party or buffet style dinner occasion.

- 1 Apple, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 12 Wonton wrappers
- Pam Cooking Spray
- 2 tablespoons Powdered sugar
- In a small bowl mix ½ a teaspoon of sugar and ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon. Add ⅛ teaspoon of nutmeg. Mix well and set aside. Take an apple, peel it and core it, then chop it into small pieces. Add the sugar-cinnamon mixture to the apple pieces making sure that it is spread evenly.
- Take a wonton wrapper and scoop about a teaspoon of the apple filling into the middle of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper to make a triangle. Use water or egg and wipe it along the edges of the wonton to seal the wonton shut. Repeat.
- Take a cookie tray and spray with Pam cooking spray. Place the wrappers on the tray and spray them lightly with Pam. Then sprinkle the wontons with a bit of powdered sugar. Bake at 350 Fahrenheit until they turn golden brown (approximately 15 minutes).
Make sure that you spread the sugar and cinnamon evenly over your diced apple.
Scoop about a teaspoon of the apple pie filling into the center of the wonton.
Wet the edges of the wonton using your finger or a brush. You can wet it with either egg or water, which ever you prefer. Fold the wonton wrapper in half, so that it forms a triangle, and then gently pinch the edges together.
Place them on a greased tray. Don't forget to spray the wontons with Pam cooking spray. Sprinkle the tops of the wontons with powdered sugar. Cook them until the turn golden brown at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Alternatively you can deep fry them.
