Lucky Dumplings

Ingredients

3/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup brown sugar
36 wonton wrappers, eggroll wrappers or
siu mai wrappers
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in
3 tablespoons water
2 cups canola oil for deep-frying

Preparation

1
Combine peanuts, sesame seeds and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
2
If using square wrappers, cut 36 circles from the wrappers with a biscuit cutter; discard trimmings. Alternatively, use wrappers as is. Cover circles or wrappers with damp cloth to prevent drying when not in use.
3
Place a heaping teaspoon peanut mixture in center of each circle or wrapper. Brush cornstarch solution along edges. Fold in half and press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
4
Heat oil in a wok or in large deep skillet until very hot. Add dumplings 1 or 2 at a time and deep-fry, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 30 seconds per side. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

Comments: These cookies are deep-fried, but the frying contributes only 2 grams of fat to each cookie.
