Tips: Halloween wonton are so delicious, it's scary

(Shanghai Daily)

09:37, October 25, 2012

Here's a fun and delicious recipe made with the traditional symbol of Halloween - pumpkin. Wonton are a perfect appetizer for dinner parties. They're easy to make and you can stuff them with practically anything, from seasoned ground pork with vegetables, cheesy mixtures to fruit fillings.

Our recipe of these savory cheesy fortune bags are great served with a tart sauce like raspberry puree, made from stewed raspberries with sherry, cinnamon, sugar and water. Cool the sauce, puree and pour into a squeeze bottle (see recipe below). Wonton freeze well, so you can store the extra ones to enjoy later. Dust pie tins or dinner plates with flour before lining wrapped wonton to prevent them from sticking. After the wonton are frozen, remove them from the plates and store in heavy-duty freezer bags.

If you think 100 wonton are too much, scale down to 50 and just cut all ingredients to half. Happy Halloween!
