  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1 cup sun-dried cranberries (finely chopped)

  • 50 wonton wrappers
  • brown sugar to taste
  • cinnamon to taste
  • oil for frying


  • Soften cream cheese.
  • In a bowl, mix cranberry, apple and pumpkin puree. (Bistro 1896 uses locally grown apples and pie pumpkins.)
  • Lay out wonton wrappers.
  • Place a dollop of cream cheese and the pumpkin, cranberry and apple mixture in the center of each wonton.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar to taste.
  • Lightly moisten the edges of each wonton wrapper and fold into triangles, then fold back the long ends of the triangle and pinch together.
  • Fry wontons in 350 degree oil for 5-6 minutes.
  • Take out of oil carefully and drain excess oil from wontons.
  • Let wontons rest a minute or two before serving.
  • Create honey-orange sauce by combining honey and orange slices. Cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring often.
