  • 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.
