Boursin Wantons with Berry Jam




Now, I know what you're thinking. These sound semi... unique, right?  You may be thinking to yourself... "fluffy herby whipped cheese with sweet yet tangy berry jam action? How bizarre, how bizarre (enter late 90's song beats here)." But trust me on this- you'll be licking your fingers and scraping your plates, even despite that screachy horrific sound that tends to make. These are a crowd pleasing appetizer that look like you've put yo' back into your cooking... but your secret's safe with me. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 package wanton wrappers (see pic)
1 package Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs Gournay Cheese (see pic)
1/2 cup raspberry, blackberry, or strawberry jam
1 tbs. water
Spritz of Pam/non-stick spray

The Steps

1. First off, I hate when I read a recipe that has fancy-shmancy-special-sounding ingredients of which I a) have never heard of or seen and b) have no idea where they are living in the market. That said, here's a pic of what you'll be searching for in the grocery store:




Wanton wrappers are (weirdly?) usually in the vegetable section near the tofu and such, and the Boursin is in the specialty cheese (btw, what cheese isn't special??) section where you'd find bleu cheese or brie. I didn't add a picture of the jam because I have faith you can sniff this one out on your own.

2. Take an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and spray it lightly with some Pam. Then take your wanton wrappers and lay out as many squares that fit on your baking sheet at a time. Yes I ran out of foil... don't hate, haterz. Turn your oven to 350 degrees!



3. Then, take a spoon and scoop out some of your Boursin cheese into the middle of each wanton wrapper square, like so:


4. Then, using either a basting brush or the highly technical cooking tool I like to call your pointer finger, brush the outer edges all around the square of the wanton wrapper. Then, take one side and pull over to the other, creating a triangle:


5. Bake these little punks for 12 or so minutes. Let them toast up and when they're nice and crisp, you can remove and let cool a bit. While these are cooking, take your 1/2 cup of jam and warm in the microwave for 20 seconds. Stir it around... it will probably need about 20 seconds more. Stir it again and make sure it is nice and liquified.

6. Using a spoon, drizzle the warm jam on top of the somewhat cooled wantons. Serve immediately (or hoard in the kitchen to yourself as I've done once or twice. What?). No no, share with your friends... they'll think the globe of you and your kitchen swagga. Enjoy!
