Precut wonton wrappers (in the refrigerated section of the supermarket) make it easy to create this sweet version of beggar's purses, which are traditionally savory morsels. Kids may prefer cherry filling or applesauce in place of the blueberry pie filling.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400º. Cover the wonton wrappers with plastic wrap or lay a moistened towel over them to keep them from drying out while you work.

  • Lay 1 wrapper on a flat surface. Place a tablespoonful of pie filling in the center. Using a pastry brush or a small, clean paintbrush, dab the outer edges of the wrapper with water. Bring the four corners of the square wrapper together and pinch them to make a little pouch. (The water helps the dough adhere.)

  • Put the pouches on a parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet. Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes, until the outer edges of the pouch have just begun to brown.

  • Remove pouches from oven and let cool partially on the baking sheet. When they're still a little warm, dust them lightly with the confectioners' sugar and serve.

  • Tip: To make sure the dusting is light and uniform, put sugar in a small strainer and gently shake it back and forth over the fruit bundles.

  • How Kids Can Help: All steps before bundles go into the oven.
