Okay so I know it's the second week of December and I stil haven't posted anything for the holidays, so I suppose this better be a good one. Well it is. Deep fried chocolate caramel banana wontons. And if that isn't good enough, I don't know what is. The best part of this dessert/appetizer/snack/yumminess is watching people bite into the crispy wonton expecting something savoury but instead getting a sweet surprise. And during the holidays who doesn't love a sweet surprise? And the brilliant part about these wontons is the ease of making them and how little ingredients are required. There is no fusing with measurements and you can add whatever you like into the wontons, well whatever you can fit. You can replace the Caramilk with Rolos or bits of Mars bars, and switch up the peanut butter for Nutella, or use strawberries instead of bananas. Endless possibilities. These can also be made ahead of time, wrapped and refrigerated till you are ready to deep fry them. They don't take long to fry up as you're not trying to cook what's inside the wonton but simply creating a beautiful golden crispy shell. Enjoy! Deep Fried Chocolate Banana Wontons wonton wrappers (3 1/2" x 3 1/2") peanut butter 1 banana, peeled and sliced Caramilk bars vegetable oil for deep frying powdered sugar for dusting (optional) Prepare a small bowl of water at your prep station, this is to glue and seal your wontons. Take one wonton wrap at a time and smear about 1 tsp of peanut butter in the center. Press down a slice of banana onto the peanut butter and top with chocolate. Dip your finger into the water and trace around the edge of the wrapper. Fold the corners of the wonton into the center like an envelope and pinch and seal. Make sure the edges are sealed properly, use a bit more water if you feel it is needed, but do not soak the wrapper. In a small pot, heat up enough oil to fry 3-4 wontons at a time, about 3 inches deep. Heat the oil till it reaches 350°F or if you don't have a thermometer insert a chopstick or toothpick into the oil and it is ready when you see bubbles form. When the oil is ready slowly place in 3-4 wontons at a time and fry for approximately 1-2 minutes or until the wonton wrapper is a golden brown. Remove and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Dust the wontons with powdered sugar if desired and let cool for 1 minute before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
