Prep Time40 Minutes

Ingredients
3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
24 wonton wrappers
Vegetable oil, for frying
Caramel Sauce
Vanilla ice cream
Powdered sugar
Cinnamon
Directions
  1. In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine the apples, brown sugar, vanilla and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the apples are soft and liquid is mostly evaporated, about 15 to 20 minutes. Lightly mash with a potato masher or fork. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water.
  3. On a cutting board or other work surface, lay out 3 wonton wrappers. Lightly brush the edges with the egg wash. Place 2 teaspoons of filling onto the bottom third of each wrapper. Beginning at the bottom of the wrapper, roll the wrapper up around the filling, while folding the edges inward, like a small eggroll. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  4. Line large plate with triple layer of paper towels. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large saucepan to 325°F. Fry 4 or 5 wontons at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to the paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining wontons.
  5. Drizzle caramel sauce on a plate. Top each plate with 6 wontons and a scoop of ice cream. Garnish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and cinnamon, if desired.
