strawberry wontons

you read correctly. i baked. well, kind of. this recipe comes from my dear friend tricia. tricia was always the one i looked up to. she's that kinda gal that does everything pretty much perfect- or at least it appears that way. she recently took up cake baking. now i'm not talking about normal out-of-a-box cake baking, i'm talking about making it from scratch from start to finish, inclusive of multiple tiers and fondant decorations. as i've pointed out earlier, i don't do that. this is as extreme as it gets in the baking world.

strawberry wontons

24 wonton wrappers
2/3 c brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
6 tbs melted butter
12 oz cream cheese, softened
4 tsp orange juice concentrate (or you can use Cointreau)
4 tbl honey
12 strawberries

1. mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together.
2. place the wonton wrappers in a mini muffin pan.
3. put ½ tsp of butter on each wonton and add 1 tsp of the brown sugar/cinnamon mix on top. bake for 8 minutes at 350°.
4. mix the cream cheese, orange juice, and honey together and drop 1 tsp. onto warm, baked wonton. add ½ of a strawberry to each.
