Pumpkin Pie Wontons: Video

With Halloween behind us, I can finally focus on the biggest food holiday of the year: Thanksgiving. In my opinion it’s the one food-centric American holiday where cooks and non-cooks alike bring their best dishes to the family table to share with loved ones. From sliced roasted turkey with cranberry sauce to sweet potato pie, traditional Thanksgiving food is a day not to count calories but to indulge in a feast fit for royalty.

Today, I am sharing these fantastic finger-food sized pumpkin pie wontons which are deep-fried to golden perfection and coated in cinnamon-sugar. Made with canned pumpkin pie filling, these small dessert bites can be assembled quickly. Kids of at preschool age or older can easily help with every step with the exception of deep-frying. I know some of you would prefer to bake these in the oven, but I do not recommend this. The texture is not the same and the cinnamon sugar will not adhere properly.

If you’re looking for a crowd-pleasing holiday dessert, give these a try. I am very confident they will be well received and devoured quickly.
