I had a dual goal in coming up with this recipe: to use my Thanksgiving leftovers and to make an appetizer for a pot-luck dinner that I was going to. I came up with this!
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 can of whole cranberry sauce
3 cups diced turkey
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1 package Won Ton wrappers
Blend the cream cheese and the cranberry sauce until smooth and well blended. Dice up the turkey as fine as you’d like it. It can be shredded or I used my Pampered Chef food chopper. Add to the cream cheese mix with the almonds and salt and pepper to taste.
Using a spoon (or Pampered Chef small scoop), place some filling in the middle of the won ton wrapper. Use water around the edges so it will seal, then close.
I baked mine at 375 for about 30-40 minutes. You can also fry them. And we all know that fried is always better.
Serve with any remaining cranberry sauce that you might have as a dip.
