The Freshman Cook: 2021

Welcome to #Cranberry Week! This is the final day of our week celebrating cranberries. I hope you have found recipes that inspire you to create something special, and might become a holiday favorite!  

Cranberry and Brie Wontons

(printable recipe at end of page)

Makes 1 dozen wontons

6 ounces fresh Cranberries

1/8 cup granulated sugar

1/8 cup light brown sugar

a squeeze of fresh orange, 2-3 squeezes

1 dozen uncooked Wonton Wrappers 

4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened


Place the cranberries in a medium pot on the stove. Heat on medium heat. Add both sugars, and the orange squeezes. Stir together. The sauce should start to thicken. Once it does, let sauce cool.

Place your wonton at an angle. Add a slice of cream cheese, approx. 1/4″ wide. Place 1-2 teaspoons of cooked cranberry on top of the cream cheese. To wrap the wontons up, use a small brush and wet¬†the edges of wonton, all around the edges. Take the two opposite points and pull them together as shown above. The water will hold this together. Of course, the cranberries and brie will be inside. Pull one of the sides to the center and attach with water, as before. Pull other side into the wonton and use the water to attach it. Place the wontons in the air fryer and cook for 3-4 minutes. You may have to go longer, just check as they are cooking. ¬† Cook the wontons for approx. 3-4 minutes.
Place the wontons on a serving plate, and before serving, grate some chocolate over the wontons. Also, lightly sprinkle with confectioners sugar.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
