American Mini Fried Apple Pies

Recipe courtesy of my granddaughter, Dessert Guru Alecia Baxter
apple pies
3 large apples, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs flour
1 package wonton wrappers

egg wash:
1 egg yolk
1 tsp water

vegetable oil for frying

cinnamon sugar:
1 Tbs cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

Combine apples, lime juice, sugar, vanilla and flour. Set aside.

Combine egg yolk and 1 tsp water. Set aside.

Working on a large surface, such as a cookie sheet, lay out 1 wonton wrapper. Brush outer edge (1/4") with egg wash. Place 1 tsp filling onto one side of wonton. Fold wrapper over and seal edges shut . Repeat with remaining wontons.

Add vegetable oil to a skillet until 1/2" deep. Heat oil over medium high heat. When hot, carefully place wontons in oil (work in small batches, do not overcrowd the pan). Cook 3 minutes per side or until lightly golden brown. Carefully flip each wonton and cook an additional 3 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Repeat process with remaining wontons.

American Beauty (1999)

"American Beauty" is visually a beautiful film. Great American family with all the right touches in life, right jobs, home, neighborhood and kids. Well, as you know nothing is perfect, and this film shows just how screwed up "perfect" can be. Kevin Spacey (Lester) and Annette Benning (Carolyn) are a couple in chaos. Lester is having a mid-life crisis and Carolyn is a crisis. Very well made, this is one of the good ones!

The film "American Beauty" is American as apple pie or our American Mini Fried Apple Pies. Our mini's are a new and yummy twist to the same ole, same ole, bringing apple pie into the 21 century!
