I've never made the entire 8 to 10 dozen! If you want fewer, just guestimate and reduce the proportion of filling ingredients accordingly, just keep all filling ingredients in equal proportions, keeping in mind it only takes 1 level teaspoon of filling for each crescent. Hot tea, ice cream or some fresh chilled fruit are good with these. Let them cool somewhat before sampling ~ the filling will be molten right out of the pan/wok.
Yield 8 to 10 dozen
1/2 cup chopped, salted cocktail peanuts
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 package won ton wrappers
1 egg, beaten
Mix peanuts, coconut, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Fold won ton squares into triangles. Round off the top corner with scissors . (Or buy the round wrappers.) Place 1 teaspoon filling in center. Moisten edges with beaten egg and seal.
Deep fry in hot oil until golden, turning once; drain.
Store in air-tight container. They will keep for 3 to 4 weeks if kept in an airtight container.
Ha! They NEVER last that long around here.
