Strawberries with Crisp Wontons

Chinese five-spice powder is used in both sweet and savory dishes; it adds a subtle hint of spice to the whipped cream.

  • servings: 4


  • 4 wonton wrappers
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • Pinch of five-spice powder or cinnamon and ground cloves

Cook's Note

Wonton skins are available in the produce or freezer section of most supermarkets, as well as in Asian food markets. Unused wonton skins can be frozen for future use.


  1. Step 1

    Heat oven to 425 degrees. Brush both sides of wonton wrappers lightly with melted butter. Spread 2 tablespoons sugar on a plate and press skins into sugar to coat evenly on both sides. Place on a nonstick or buttered baking sheet. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until wontons begin to turn golden brown. Turn and cook an additional 2 minutes or until evenly browned. Remove from baking sheet and let cool.

  2. Step 2

    Slice the strawberries and toss with 1 teaspoon sugar. Whip the cream with five-spice powder or cinnamon and cloves.

  3. Step 3

    Divide strawberries among four plates. Top with cream and a crisp wonton, and serve.
