Healthy Cherry Pie Bites Recipe

May 9 2017

The Quick Route to Pie Town

This recipe is full of shortcuts. Wonton wrappers make amazing thin crusts for little hand pies, and you don't even have to pit the cherries when you buy 'em frozen. The results taste so good, you'll wanna dance like you're in an '80s music video...

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes

Cool: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 1/2 cups frozen pitted dark sweet cherries (no sugar added), partially thawed and chopped

3 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Dash salt

12 wonton wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the supermarket)

Optional topping: powdered sugar

Directions:

In a nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/3 cup water, and stir to dissolve. Add all remaining ingredients except wonton wrappers. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until mixture is thick and gooey, 5 - 7 minutes.

Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Lay a wonton wrapper flat on a dry surface. Evenly distribute 1/12th of the cherry mixture (about 1 1/2 tbsp.) on the bottom corner of the wrapper.

Moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the top corner over the mixture so the top corner meets the bottom corner. Seal edges by pressing firmly.

Place on the baking sheet, and repeat to make 11 more pie bites.

Spray with nonstick spray. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
