Easy Apple Pie Wontons and Peach Chutney

I was finally going to do it. I was going to follow someone else’s recipe, this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Wontons, exactly as written and see how it came out. Then I noticed that it called for pumpkin pie spice, but I figured I could use my own seasonings and it would still be the original recipe. Then I looked in the pantry and found that I didn’t have any canned pumpkin, and that was the end of that idea.

But I still had the urge to play with gyoza wrappers, and it wouldn’t go away. Though I used a few of them in the Peach and Pluot Gyozas last Saturday, I’ve still got a whole stack because they come in packs of 100, and I’d like to use them up before they go bad. So I took an inventory of all the fruit in my kitchen and decided to devise the easiest apple pie recipe ever.

And the apple pie wontons were great–with one problem. As they cook, the wonton wrappers expand and the apples contract, so when they’re done, there’s a lot of empty space inside and not enough filling. They tasted good, but not very satisfying. So I started thinking that what these wontons needed was a dipping sauce. But rather than a thin sauce, how about a thick fruit compote? Or how about a chutney? I looked around my kitchen and found a nice ripe peach that would make a perfect simple chutney. And oh, the combination was divine!

Simple, but delicious! The peach chutney brought back memories of my mother’s pickled peaches–sweet and sour peaches with a hint of cloves. If you have chutney left over, spread it over some freshly baked whole grain bread for a real treat.

And the next time I play with gyozas, I’m going to fill them with peach chutney!

Yummy! These were so easy and my son and I couldn't stop eating them, even without the chutney(which I will try when we have peaches). There are so many different things to try with this idea :)

my chutney didn’t turn out anything like the picture. it was a bit runny, but it tasted simply Amazing(!). i used egg roll wrappers, and filled them with the chutney. I have a feeling that they would be amazing deep fried, but that would go against the fat free policy. oh well. still really good :)

Hey, we can bake these for ten short minutes in a toaster oven whenever we want a quick snack! No need to use a large oven unless we are making a large quantity.
