Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds, or 2 teaspoons dried marjoram and 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 1-pound package wonton skins
  • Salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. If using sesame seeds, heat a small, heavy, dry skillet over medium-high heat. Add seeds and cook, stirring constantly or shaking the pan, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool.
  2. Spread a clean dish towel on the counter. Fill a medium bowl with cold water. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 4 wonton skins, one at a time. After about 20 seconds, or when the skins look like cooked noodles, remove them with a slotted spoon and immerse in the bowl of cold water. Immediately arrange in a single layer on the towel to drain.
  3. When you have enough wonton skins to fill a baking sheet, arrange them in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or herbs. Season with salt. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp. (Watch carefully toward the end to avoid burning.) Remove to a rack to cool. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton skins.
