Ingredients

For the Filling

  • 2 nectarines diced (about 2 cups-worth)
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • ½ Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg

For the turnovers

  • Nectarine filling from above
  • 22 wonton skins
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine filling ingredients.
  • On a clean workspace, lay out a few wonton wrappers (I like doing about 4 at a time) and spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of filling onto the center of each wonton. Dip your index finger in water and lightly dampen the edges of the wonton. Fold the wonton in half diagonally to form a triangle shape. Press firmly to seal. Note: it’s key to seal these well, as any openings will allow air in during cooking causing the wonton to puff up – they will still taste good just not as good ;). Place wonton on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining wontons.
  • Once all the turnovers are ready to go. Quickly spray the top of each with olive oil cooking spray. Next, combine ½ tsp of brown sugar with ¼ tsp of cinnamon and sprinkle over the tops of the turnovers. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges of the turnovers are starting to brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Enjoy!
  • Note: I’m not sure how well these would keep the next day as Bry and I finished them off in a matter of hours. . .if you do have any leftover I would love to hear how well/if they keep!
