Sweet Sesame Wonton Crisps

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2004

Ingredients

  • 8 square wonton wrappers, thawed if frozen
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 4 teaspoons white or black sesame seeds, or a mixture
  • 1 pint sorbet, such as mango, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange wonton wrappers in a single layer on baking sheet, and set aside.

  2. Stir together sugar, ginger, and salt in a small bowl; set aside. Whisk together the egg yolk and cream in another small bowl. Brush wontons with egg wash, and sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds and scant 1/4 teaspoon sugar mixture. Bake until wontons are golden and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on sheet on a wire rack. Serve wonton crisps with sorbet.

    I made these yesterday and they turned out terribly. I must say this was a huge failure in my kitchen. I would not make these again. I was looking for a quick recipe...this one was just ick!

    Kengin, try spraying both sides of wonton with oil . Grind dry herbs/spices with sea salt in mortar and pestle and sprinkle on wontons. Or you could use seasame seeds. Keep a close eye on them in the oven- they burn easily.

    I made both the sweet recipe above and a savory version with rosemary. Follow the recipe above through sprinkling with sesame seeds. Then sprinkle coarse salt (kosher/sea salt) and whatever dried herb you like. I also sprinkled a little fresh ground pepper then bake as directed.
