Sweet Won Ton Pillows
By Chef Martin Yan


2 tablespoons Packed Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Unsweetened Coconut shredded
2 tablespoons Unsalted Roasted Peanuts
2 tablespoons Sesame Seeds

24 Mint leaves
1 Egg lightly beaten
Cooking Oil for deep frying


Combine the filling ingredients in a bowl. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of a wonton wrapper and top with a mint leaf. Brush the edges of the wrapper lightly with the egg.

Fold the wrapper in half diagonally over the filling to form a triangle. Squeeze out the air, then pinch the edges to seal.

In a wok, heat the oil for deep-frying to 350 degrees. Add the triangles, a few at a time, and deep-fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.

Remove the triangles and drain on paper towels. Makes 24 pillows.
