Ingredients

  • 2 T salted butter
  • 1 egg - beaten with 1 T of water
  • 12 oz herbed goat cheese - cut into 24 pieces and kept very cold
  • 2 T bacon jam
  • 24 wonton wrappers - large
  • Parchment paper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Melt butter and set aside.
  • Whisk egg with 1 T of water until smooth
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Place 24 wonton wrapper on the parchment paper
  • Lightly brush wonton wrappers with melted butter.
  • Place a piece of goat cheese  in the center of the wonton wrapper
  • Top goat cheese with a fig jam

To Make the Purse

  • Fold corners diagonally to the center, pinching together the opposite corners
  • Hold the pouch in the palm of one hand, gently twist the top of the pouch to seal.
  • Brush each purse with butter
  • Brush each purse with egg-wash
  • Place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the purses are golden brown
  • Serve warm

Notes

 
*Place goat cheese in the freezer 30 minutes prior to cutting.  This will make it a little firmer and make it easier to work with.
These can be made a day in advance and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.  Just pop them in the oven just before serving and cook for about 10 minutes.  Serve warm.

    Amazing Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard
    Decadent Low-Calorie Pumpkin Custard is the perfect low-calorie dessert for the holidays. Many of us look forward to having pumpkin pie once a year on Thanksgiving but we may not want all the extra calories. Give this recipe a try - you'll get all the pumpkin pie goodness with 1/2 the calories.  If you want a lighter dessert, but still want all of the flavors of your traditional pumpkin pie, try making this simple pumpkin custard instead. This pumpkin custard is basically a pumpkin pie without the pie shell. In fact, pumpkin pie is a fairly healthy dessert option, and it is even healthier if you don't use the pie shell, which is made mostly from butter. Enjoy pumpkin custard throughout the fall season, since pumpkins are in such ready supply you can easily use fresh pumpkin, or use canned puréed pumpkin if you are short on time or can't find fresh pumpkin.
