Hi all and welcome to the latest episode of Nikoli's Kitchen! In this week's positivity segment, I'm actually kind of angry with myself for not believing in me- so I make an accountability pledge to you here and now that I will. In the back half of the show, I whipped up some baby apple pies! Thank you so much for listening, and above all, THANK YOU for believing in me!


Featured Recipe for this Episode

8 c green apple, finely chopped
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 c water
1/4 c cornstarch
1 T cinnamon
1/4 t allspice
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t salt
50 wonton wrappers
Oil for deep frying

1/2 c white sugar
1 T cinnamon

Combine the apples, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and salt into a large saucepan and stir together until well-combined.
Cook over mid heat until your apples are softened, 7-10 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool. 
Place 1 T of filling in the center of your wonton wrapper. 
Use your finger or a brush and wet the edges and fold in half, being sure to press the wrapper closed. A tight seal is very important here!
Combine your white sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.
Heat your oil to 350°.
Deep fry until well-browned, 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to overcrowd your oil.
Remove from oil and place in the cinnamon sugar and toss to coat.

Yield: 50 apple cinnamon wontons.
Calories/Serving: 52 calories per wonton before frying (this includes the after coating). Likely 75-85 after.
