Ingredients

  • 24 wonton wrappers , or 6 spring roll wrappers cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cheese , use goat cheese, feta, mozarella, or use cottage cheese mixed with cheese spread and salt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 6-7 basil leaves , finely chiffonade

Fruit Filling:

  • 1/2 cup strawberries , fresh and diced
  • 1/4 cup gooseberries , diced, or any other berries
  • 6-7 basil leaves , finely chopped

Garnish:

  • balsamic vinegar
  • pistachio , slivered

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

  2. Grease a mini muffin pan (or cupcake pan) with olive oil.

  3. Lay out the wonton wrappers or cut the spring roll sheets into squares. I used spring roll sheets, cut into 4 pieces for making the cups.

  4. Place the wonton wrappers in your mini-muffin pan. Use your fingers to push the wrappers into the bottom of the pan and gently press the wrappers to the sides to form a cup shape. Make sure that the wrapper points fold over muffin cup edges a little bit.

  5. Grease them lightly with olive oil. Fill them with 1 tbsp dry beans of any kind to weight them down. These beans will help the cups get a the perfect shape during baking.

  6. Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown. Please keep an eye on them as they bake really fast. Make sure that you don't over bake, as we need to bake them again after filling in the cheese.

  7. Take the cups out on a wire rack and remove the beans which were added only for the shape. Let the cups cool down completely. If you want, you can store these cups for up to a week in an air-tight container.

  8. When you are ready to serve, mix the cheese with honey, chili flakes, black pepper, italian seasoning and basil. Fill 1 to 1½ tsp cheese in each cup and bake in an oven at 350°F/175°C for 5 minutes till the cheese gets warm.

  9. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the strawberries, gooseberries, and basil.

  10. When your wonton cups are ready, add in your fruit filling, drizzle with balsamic glaze, and garnish with pistachios. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes

  • Unfilled wonton cups can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • The wonton cups taste the best when served immediately after filling.
  • Play around with the ingredients to get different flavors out of your strawberry and cheese wonton cups.
