Cinnamon Apple Pie Feta Won Ton Turnovers, 3 points+

by DanicasDaily on August 26, 2011

For my Feta-Recipe Finale, I really wanted to see if I could use that deliciously creamy Euphrates Feta Cheese in  a sweet dish. (Totally Iron Chef like right?! LOL)  I had pondered making Feta Brownies by creating a “feta cream cheese swirl” or possibly feta lemon bars.  I really wanted something “lighter” that would be a finger food.

That is when I remembered my FAVORITE Thin Won Ton Recipe of all time!

~ You get 10 of these for only 3 points+!!!!  (Tracey picked these up for me at a local Chinese Food Store).

I wasn’t really thinking that the feta would stand out against Nutella, but, knew I wanted to make it enhance our “turn overs” with salty, creamy, cheesy goodness. 

The feta really compliments the sweet crunchy cinnamon & vanilla apples in a way that makes you think are biting into a crispy apple cheesecake turnover. 

These turn overs are delicious when sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, but, feel free to get a little fancy and drizzle them with caramel or serve them with homemade vanilla been froyo!
