Sweet Wontons

makes 2 dozen

wonton wrappers
vegetable oil for deep-frying
powdered sugar for dusting
filling 1
½ cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 tablespoon finely chopped candied ginger
½ tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon brown sugar
filling 2
¼ cup dried sliced bananas
¼ cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey

In separate bowls, combine each of the filling ingredients. Place about a teaspoon of filling in center of a wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered to prevent drying). Brush edges of wrapper with water and fold wrapper in half to form a triangle. Pinch edges to seal. Pull two opposite corners together, moisten one corner, and overlap with the other corner; press to seal. Cover filled wontons with a dry towel to prevent drying. Fry wonton in deep hot oil (365F) for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Fry 2-3 at a time or oil temperature will drop and wontons will become greasy. Place on paper towel to drain off any excess grease. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm or cold.
