I have a new obsession with wonton wrappers. I know. I am weird. But they are just so cute and great as a healthier replacement for filo dough or really any type of dough, crust, or pasta. It all started with the lasagna cupcakes, and they will be definitely continue to be a go to ingredient in the future. This recipe was inspired after seeing some buttery, flaky Spanakopita at a local wine store and knowing there must be a way to make these little pockets of love, lower in fat and calories. To make these, I replaced the filo dough with wonton wrappers and stuffed them with spinach, onions, garlic, and feta cheese although I think the possibilities here are virtually endless.
