Blueberry Pie Wontons

Do you see that?! Do you SEE that up there? That sprig of rosemary? I pulled it out for garnish today, nestled it behind these absurdly wild dessert wontons, then froze. I FROZE, people.

Because it smelled like pine needles. And outside it’s already snowing. Oh.yes.it.is.

And it was like I was receiving a sign from heaven. And that sign said, “Y’all. Christmas is right around the corner.”

Mkay. So my signs from heaven sound like Paula Deen. Don’t get distracted.

I tried being ready for Halloween. Really, I did. I asked the twins what they wanted to wear for costumes in the FIRST WEEK of September. They said, “uh–we’re just going to wear stuff we have around the house. And glow sticks.” Check. Halloween was done.

But, it’s now officially minutes before Halloween and guess who have changed their minds about costumes four times in the last eight minutes? It rhymes with fwins.

So, Halloween is already a bust without even arriving. And Thanksgiving is a hiccup away. And then that dang sprig of rosemary reminded me it’s Christmas. Dang you rosemary. Curse you, heavenly Paula Deen voice.

The good news here is Christmas doesn’t have to go the way of every other rushed, insanely busy holiday. As if delivered by Paula Deen herself, my fave pal, Kolette emailed the other day to let me know she’s running a {super cheap} online class that will get your Christmas giving kick-started with style.

And good, holy dickens, does Kolette have style. She’s a long-time artist and stamp-creator. So, you can rest assured that you won’t just be giving in style this holiday season, you’re going to be giving the best gol-durned gifts of anyone in the neighborhood. Plus, you know that winning really is everything, so there’s that.

Rosemary.

Rose.mar.y. Y’all.

Blueberry Pie Wontons

Ingredients:

2 cups frozen blueberries
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
18-24 wonton wrappers
1 1/2 cups coconut oil for frying
Powdered sugar for dusting

Directions:

In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, butter, sugar, and cornstarch over medium-high heat until a thick fruit sauce is formed. It took about 5 minutes of full-blown simmering for mine to reach perfection. Cool.

Heat coconut oil in a deep pan to medium heat.

Spoon a small amount of the blueberry mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges of each wonton wrapper with a bit of water, then press the edges of the wonton together until sealed.

Transfer the wontons carefully into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on one side. Use a pair of tongs to gently flip the wonton. Fry on the other side until golden brown. Remove from oil, transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.

Dust just before serving. Serve alone or a la mode. Enjoy!

    I hope you’re staying warm with all this crazy snow! I’m just hoping the roads don’t ice over too much in the night (okay, what am I saying? I’m kind of hoping they do, not the detriment of anyone’s safety, but so my husband has to stay from work… he works up in the mountains and they’re pretty good about telling him to stay home if it’s bad at all).

    Perfect timing – my rosemary plant has grown to 3 feet wide and tall, threatening to invade the house. This recipe sounds heavenly, hmmm maybe a little lemon zest added to the mix… Bring on some more of these heavenly ideas!
