“Crispy, sugar-dusted wonton wrappers cache a sweet chewy filling of fruit
and nuts, adding a perfect touch to the end of the meal.” For filling, in a
medium bowl toss together pears, apples, cherries and lemon juice. In a
large skillet cook fruit mixture in 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat 7
minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in Marsala, nuts, cinnamon and ginger. Cook 3
minutes or until liquid has disappeared stirring often. Stir in syrup; set
aside. For each wonton spoon 2 teaspoons filling into the center of a
wrapper. Lightly moistened edges of wrapper with water. Fold top edge of
wrapper over filling to opposite edge making half-moon. Press edges
together to seal. Arrange wontons on a greased baking sheet. Brush with the
melted butter. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake at 350F 12-15 minutes or
until golden. Cool slightly. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 36
wontons. Better Homes and Gardens, “Good things in small packages”, January
