cup plus 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
tablespoons light brown sugar
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
tablespoons Neufchatel cream cheese, room temperature
Egg wash (1 beaten egg + 1 tablespoon water)
vegetable oil, for frying
Powdered sugar, for dusting
cup Neufchatel cream cheese, room temperature
teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a small bowl, whisk together pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and cream cheese until well combined.
Lay wonton wrappers on a clean surface. Brush egg wash along edges of each wrapper and place 1 teaspoon filling in the center. Fold up each wrapper into a triangle shape and pinch edges well to seal.
In a large, deep saucepan over medium heat, bring about 1 1/2 inches oil to 320°F (use a deep-fry or candy thermometer to measure temperature). Drop 3-4 wontons at a time into oil and cook 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown.
Remove wontons with slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool slightly. Repeat with remaining wontons. Dust wontons with powdered sugar.
In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cream cheese, maple syrup and ground cinnamon. Serve dip alongside warm wontons.

More About This Recipe
- Ladies and gentlefolk, friends and foes, birds of the air and fish of the sea, all 100,000 hairs on my head… I have an announcement. I have found the answer to world peace: Pumpkin Pie Wontons with a creamy maple dip.You may think this claim is outlandish, and I admit I thought the same when I first made a go of this recipe. “What could POSSIBLY be tasty about pumpkin-cream cheese filling wrapped up in a wonton fried to a light, crispy-brown goodness and then sprinkled with powdered sugar and dipped in a sweet maple sauce?” I asked myself. I mean—right? It was a mystery.But then, when mine eyes laid upon my creation and a single dipped wonton was laid upon my tongue, I found that nothing in this universe could fathomably be more delicious, more amazing, more crowd-pleasing and therefore, world peace-ing than these wontons. Once you try them for yourself, you too will understand.They’re the answer to world peace, in 30 minutes flat.
