sesame wontons 

by Dorothy Huang

(Yields 45)

1/4 cup black sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 cup white sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 cup coconut shreds
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 package (12-ounce) frozen wonton wrappers
4 cups oil for deep-frying
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon powder

1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl.

2. Put 1 teaspoon of the mixture at the lower corner of the wrapper.  Fold the corner over the mixture.  Roll one time until it forms a triangle shape.  With your fingertip, moisten the left corner of the wrapper with water.  Place the bottom of the right corner on top. Press to seal tightly.

3. Heat 4 cups oil in a wok over high heat to 375 degree.  Carefully add 1/3 of wontons to the oil; deep-fry until golden brown.  Remove with a strainer.  Drain on paper towels.  Repeat with the remaining wontons.  Sprinkle powdered sugar and cinnamon on top.
