Cook: 10 minutes
12 small square wonton wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the supermarket)
1 tbsp. cornstarch
3 cups finely chopped peaches (fresh or thawed from frozen; no sugar added)
2 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1 packet no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread, room temperature
Optional toppings: light whipped topping, additional cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
Place a wonton wrapper into each cup of the muffin pan. Press it into the bottom and up along the sides.
Lightly spray wrappers with nonstick spray. Bake until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/2 cup water and stir to dissolve. Add all remaining ingredients except butter. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until peaches have slightly softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 6 - 8 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in butter/buttery spread.
Spoon peach mixture into wonton cups, about 3 tbsp. each.
