MINI APPLE PIE WONTON CUPS

MINI APPLE PIE WONTON CUPS

INGREDIENTS

18 wonton wrappers
Oil spray
Apple Pie Filling
5 cups small diced, peeled Granny Smith apples (around 1.5 lb / 800g, 5 medium size apples)
2 tbs butter
⅓ to ½ cup brown sugar (adjust to taste, depends on tartness of apples)
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup water
Pinch of salt
Cream
¾ cup whipping cream (unwhipped)
2 tbsp powdered sugar (icing sugar), sifted
Few drops vanilla essence

Directions

1 Preheat oven to 390F/200C.
2 Mould wonton wrappers into standard size muffin tin / cupcake trays. Spray lightly with oil (this helps them bake evenly golden) then bake for 10 to 15 minutes until crisp and golden. Remove from oven and let cool in the muffin tins.
3 Meanwhile, place Apple Pie Filling ingredients in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to simmer, then turn the heat down to medium. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the apple is softened, around 8 minutes. There should be no liquid left, just a syrupy coating on the apple. Adjust sweetness to taste. The amount of sugar required differs depending on the tartness/sweetness of the apples. Remove from heat and let cool until it is warm.
4 Meanwhile, whip cream and powdered sugar (icing sugar) until soft peaks form.
5 To serve, spoon still warm Apple Pie Filling into wonton cups and top with a dollop of cream. Serve immediately.
