As the fall season approaches my cravings for classic fall desserts such as homemade apple pie and warm apple turnovers baked in a flaky puff pastry seem to have intensified. However, my limited baking supplies and restricted budget have prevented me from making such desserts. However, I have found a creative, healthy, and inexpensive solution, Won Ton wrappers. Won Ton wrappers are a great and extremely versatile staple item that everyone should consider having on hand.

This recipe is absolutely delicious, the cinnamon spiced apples paired with the sweet dried cranberries and walnuts baked in the crunchy golden brown won ton wrappers served with the warm maple syrup make for a delectable portion controlled dessert, ideal for satisfying your fall dessert cravings


1 apple, peeled and chopped finely
1 tbsp of brown sugar
1 tsp of cornstarch

1 tbsp of water
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of grated nutmeg

1 tsp of maple syrup + 2 tbsp of warm maple syrup used to drizzle over apple dumpling
3 tbsp of walnut
2 tbsp of dried cranberries
15 Nasoya all natural won ton wrapper
1/4 cup of warm water


Begin by sautéing apples, lightly spray a sauce pan and add in apples, sauté for 1 minute over medium heat or until apples begins to soften

Add in water and corn starch followed by brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup, continue to stir together all ingredients so that apples are well coated, sample apples, add additional seasonings if needed


Add walnuts and continue to mix together all ingredients

Remove from heat and transfer apple mixture to a small bowl, add in cranberries


Mix together all ingredients

Preheat oven to 350

find a flat surface that you can use as a work space, place 1/4 cup of water, apple mixture, greased baking sheet, and won ton wrapper on cleared off surface


Next dip your finger in water and moisten edges of won ton wrapper

spoon in half of a tablespoon of apple mixture into the center of the wrapper


fold bottom right corner up so it meets the top left corner (this should form a triangle shape), make sure all sides line up.  Using your fingers pinch edges all the way around to ensure they are tightly sealed and filling is secured inside the center. repeat this step until you have used up all the filling

place won tons on greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown (5 minutes on each side)

let cook for 2 to 3 minutes

meanwhile warm syrup, either microwave in a bowl for 25 second or heat over a burner on low to medium heat
