Deep-Fried Date-Filled Wontons




  1. Mix together the chopped dates, nuts, orange juice, five spice powder and lemon zest, adding more orange juice if necessary to make the mixture moist enough to hold together. Form the date mixture into small cylinders about 1/4 inch wide and 1/2 inch long. Place the date rolls diagonally on the wonton wrappers and roll up into a tube. Twist the ends of the tube, forming a shape like a Christmas cracker.
  2. Heat the oil to a temperature of 350 degrees F and fry in batches of 6 to 8 at a time, turning as necessary, until golden brown.
  3. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar and/or cinnamon if desired.

Makes 48 fritters, to serve 8 to 10.
