I love The Type A Housewife and I asked her to write a guest post for my blog. She sent me this amazing recipe. I can't wait to try it..........
"Since Katie was kind enough to write a guest post for my blog, The Type A Housewife, I decided to return the favor and write a post for Kady Did. And because I love doing cooking posts, I thought it would be fitting to write one here!
My favorite way to eat sweet potatoes is plain--I love roasting them in the oven and eating them just like that. It's a shame that so many casserole and dessert recipes add so much sugar to sweet potatoes when they just don't need it.
Seeking to make a sugar-free dessert involving sweet potatoes, I knew the key was to roast the potatoes long enough that they started to caramelize and soften. I added a Fuji apple for a little more natural sweetness and used the mixture as a filling for wontons. Rather than deep-frying the wontons, I decided to pan fry them using cooking spray. I served them with Apple Cider Dipping Sauce, although the chai syrup I made for my poached pear recipe would be fantastic with these too.
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 large Fuji apple, peeled, cored, and diced
3 tbsp. water
1-14 oz. package of wonton wrappers
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
a dash of nutmeg (you can put in more if you like--I'm not a big nutmeg fan)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce sweet potatoes with fork and bake for about 40 minutes, or until soft. Allow to cool.
Add a heaping tablespoon of filling to each wonton. Wet edges of wontons to seal.
Heat a liberal amount of cooking spray in large skillet over medium heat. Add wontons and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.
If time is a factor and you can't make the dipping sauce or chai syrup, these would also be great dusted with some cinnamon sugar or drizzled with maple syrup. Yum!"
