Raspberries and Lemon curd in Wonton Cup


Saturday was a gorgeous day... sun shining, blue sky and fresh cold Southerly wind blowing... 

I was planning to sit down and finish up this post ... but I just couldn't stay indoor for long... I kept on typing... hit the delete button... then typed and delete again...  After struggling for few more minutes... finally, I decided to go out and do some gardening... looking for some inspirationwinking If only my composing... typing would be as fuss-free as this dessert...



Only 3 main ingredients are required to whipped up this wonderful dessert :  wonton skins, frozen raspberries and lemon curd either homemade or store-bought... big grin
Since I have all the above plus some lemons in the fridge.... so I went on an extra mile to make my own lemon curd... 
Whipped up lemon curd, if you are in a hurry... refrigerate for at least 30 minutes..
Note : Add more sugar to the lemon curd if the packet of frozen raspberries are a little bit 'tart' and sour-ish.
And just before serving... prepare the wonton skins for baking... placed in mini muffin tray, shaped it like a cup and bake...  voila... refreshing crunchy dessert is ready...thumbs up...
I have only one comment about my wonton cups... although the packet labelled as extra-thin wonton skins... it is still too thick... to my liking...

  2. Looks great! How do you "twist" these wonton wrappers to look so beautiful? is there a special size that I need to look for when buying the wrappers? Thanks!

  3. very pretty!

    I'm thinking of preparing this for a party, does the wonton skin get soggy fast?

  16. I just made these, I used spring roll wrappers, they were way bigger than my muffin cups so I had to cut the edges with scissors :-). They were not as elegant as yours, but still tasted great and were crunchy - perfect contrast for the custard. I also baked the leftover pieces of the wrappers, and sprinkled them on top for a Napoleon - like effect :-). It was a lot of fun making and very tasty! Thanks, Lisa! Have a lovely weekend :-)
