  • 1
    In a small bowl, whisk together pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and cream cheese until well combined.
  • 2
    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.
  • 4
    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.

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.
