So while perusing my new favorite past time Pinterest, I found a delicious recipe for Pumpkin Pillows. The recipe came from Kraft and it looked easy enough and yummy too! I was hosting our card swap for this month and though it would be a perfect time to try this recipe out and see how it worked. 🙂
(This is a picture of the finished product…I totally forgot to take pictures of the process, but it was really easy!)
1 teaspoon water
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Unwrap caramels and put in microwave safe bowl with water and heat for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Stir in sour cream and cinnamon. Cover and put in fridge until time to serve.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup of canned pumpkin
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon flour
1/4 teaspoon orange zest (I left this out because I didn’t have any)
1 pack of wonton wrappers (I found these in the produce section at WalMart by the tofu and organic produce. $1.98 for 48 wrappers)
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Powdered sugar for dusting
Blend this all together until creamy and well mixed.
Place a dollop (anywhere from 1 mounted teaspoon to 2 teaspoons) in the center of the wrapper. Keep opened wrappers under a damp kitchen towel while preparing because the dry out quickly.
Brush egg white around edges and fold over to form a triangle.
I used a fork to make sure that all the edges were completely sealed.
See how cute they are finished?!
My nieces(8 & 10) stopped by after school for their snack and wanted to help…now I’m not about to turn down help! The pumpkin pillows were definitely easy enough for them to help with and I have to say that they were MUCH faster than I was! 🙂
I set them on a plate and put them in the fridge until it was time to fry. I couldn’t fry them and take pictures at the same time, so no frying pics. Sorry! But you will need about 2 cups of oil heated to 250°F. I did learn a little lesson that I needed to be very careful turning them. If you puncture them (or if they aren’t sealed all the way) the pumpkin filling will leak out and pop at you in the hot oil. No fun!
Place fried pumpkin pillows on a plate covered with a couple of paper towels to drain and let cool for a few minutes. Dust (or as I always do…MOUND) with powdered sugar and serve with dip!
Here is a picture with my finished product along with some of the rest of my spread for our card swap snacks. 🙂 These got rave reviews from adults and children! They are really delicious and I would strongly suggest them for any Fall party. 🙂
PS…I doubled the whole recipe except for the amount of wonton wrappers…48 was plenty. 🙂
