Apple Potstickers with Vanilla Creme Anglaise
For the Apple Potstickers:
-2 cups of Granny Smith Apples (about 2 apples)-finely diced
-3/4 cup White Sugar
-1 tbsp Cinnamon
-1/2 cup Butter
-3 tbsp Flour
-1/2 cup of Water
-25 square or rectangular Wonton Wrappers (or just buy a whole package)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients except for the wonton wrappers. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, until the apple pieces are soft and the sauce has thickened.
Let the apple mixture cool to room temperature before filling the dumplings, about 10-15 minutes.
Once the mixture has cooled, spoon ½-1 tbsp of apple mixture into the center of the wonton wrapper and pinch the corners together to form a tight seal.
Bake the dumpling for 15 minutes until golden brown.
For the Vanilla Creme Anglaise:
-1 cup Heavy Cream
-1 tbsp Vanilla Bean Paste or Vanilla Extract
-4 Egg Yolks
-1/3 cup White Sugar
In a small saucepan, heat cream and vanilla at medium-low heat until bubbles form at the edges.
While cream is heating, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until smooth in a separate bowl.
Slowly pour the hot cream into the egg yolks, whisking constantly.
Pour the mixture back into the small saucepan and continue to cook on low heat, stirring constantly. Cook the sauce until the sauce coats the back of the spoon.
