Sometimes dessert only requires a few bites to be completely satisfied. This is one of those sweets where a little goes a long way.
Honestly Biscoff is just a favorite right now. If you have never tried it you really need to get yourself to the store and purchase a jar, it's right next to the peanut butter. You won't be disappointed. I may or may not be known to sometimes have a jar in my purse...for those weaker moments. I'm sure you understand.
I am going to make this post short and sweet. I've got a plane to catch this morning as I am heading home from Memphis...it's been a whirlwind of an amazing trip. If you've been following on Instagram, then you already know all about it!
I do want to tell you about my new Strawberry Huller from OXO. Look at how beautifully it removes the core of the strawberry. When I do the same job with a pairing knife I end up pulling out so much of the berry, essentially wasting so much of it. This removes the exact amount necessary and it's so easy to use. I hope you give it a try.
Filling the wontons are easy but you must seal them tightly so they don't explode during the frying process. I learned that the hard way.
Fried Biscoff Wontons with Strawberry Dipping Sauce
For the Dipping Sauce:
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
For the wontons:
- 24 square wonton wrappers (smaller size)
- 1 (14 oz) jar Biscoff spread, chilled
- In a small bowl combine lemon juice and cornstarch and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add strawberries (smash them a little with a potato masher), sugar, water and salt. Bring to a boil and add cornstarch-lemon mixture. Simmer for one minute or until sauce is slightly thickened and set aside.
- For the wontons, set a small bowl of water to the side with a pastry brush. Place the wrappers on a large cutting board orienting them in a diamond shape instead of a square. Place a heaping teaspoon of the chilled Biscoff in the lower half of each wrapper. Brush the edges of each wrapper with a little wrapper. Fold the top half down to meet the bottom of each wrapper and form a triangle. Make sure to completely seal the edges. Place the wontons in the freezer for 30 minutes before frying.
- Heat oil to 350 degrees F in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Fry each wonton util golden brown, turning to brown each side. Scoop them out with a slotted spoon onto a paper-towel lined plate and continue to fry the rest (fry about 5 at a time). Serve warm with the strawberry sauce.
You will love these amazing little bites of heaven!
