It's Friday! Time for a flashback with Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet blog. I'm flashing back to a really delicious dessert. I love dessert, be even better if it came at the beginning of the meal. but no big deal, there is always room for a little something. I first tried this recipe for dessert ravioli's and the kids loved them. Made them once way back when and that was that, on to the next experiment! Fried Banana Ravioli with Vanilla Custard Sauce from epicurious is a really fantastic dessert and makes a great impression. Definitely gets the "oohs" and "ahhs!" I betcha can't eat just one, or even two! This is really good stuff.
Then I tried this one, called wontons instead of ravioli, but very similar to the epicurious recipe. This one is from the Cooking Forum. Also very easy! Use any sauce you like with it!

Place 12 won ton wrappers on a board. Slice each banana diagonally into 6 pieces.
Place one slice on banana on each wonton wrapper and sprinkle with brown sugar. Top with some chopped nuts, if using.
Mix together flour and water to form a paste. Brush a small amount of paste around the edges of wonton wrappers.
Top with remaining wrappers and press edges to seal. Deep fry in hot oil until golden and drain on paper towels.
