Fried Wonton Skins with Cinnamon Powered Sugar and Blackberry Jam

Do you have a sweet tooth but don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking? This was a experiment that went really right! The fried wonton skins brown up to a delicate crispness.

2 cups canola oil
1/2 package of wonton skins
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
Optional: warmed chocolate or jam

Mix the sugar and cinnamon - set aside

In a small heavy pot heat the oil for frying. If you are using a thermometer bring the oil to 350 degrees. If you don't have a thermometer dip a corner of a wonton skin in the oil. If it sizzles the oil is ready. Add 5-6 wontons at a time to the oil holding them in the oil with a Chinese spider utensil. When browned (watch them because they do brown quickly) remove and drain on a plate covered in paper towels.

Using a mesh sift sprinkle the Cinnamon powdered sugar over the wontons skins. Drizzle with warm chocolate or fruit jam based on your preference.
