Use your wonton skins/wrappers to make this super easy and delicious Indonesian wonton pouches sweet snack with ground peanuts and sesame seeds filling.
Wonton skins can be exceedingly useful for dessert and snack preparation. Though they are most familiar for making wonton (of course!), I am going to show you a neat and fast way to make sumpia. Sumpia is basically a wonton pouch filled with some stuffing (sweet or savory) and deep fried. This recipe is for sweet sumpia and the filling I use is a mix of ground peanut, toasted sesame seeds, and sugar. Savory sumpia is commonly filled with abon (meat floss).
