Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped prunes or dried apples
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 24 wonton skins
  • Vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Mix prunes, apricots, broth sugar, coconut and almonds. Place about 2 teaspoons mixture in center of each wonton skin. Moisten edges with water. Fold each skin in half to form triangle; press edges firmly to seal. Cover to prevent drying.
  2. Heat 1 to 1 1/2 inches oil to 360 degrees F.
  3. Fry 3 to 4 wontons at a time, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side; drain. Cool thoroughly and stir in airtight container.
  4. Serve with ice cream or sherbet if desired.
