What's For Dessert: Crisp Wontons with Strawberries and Yogurt

It turns out I am a sucker for food magazines. While in the airport the other day, I decided to pick up a copy of Everyday Food to entertain myself prior to takeoff. I've watched the TV version on PBS and have been inspired to try a few recipes from what I've seen there on several occasions. As I paged through the magazine, I found a number of recipes to try out. And of course, the first recipe I opted to try was one for dessert. This recipe was super-simple to make and quite delish.

Crisp Wontons with Strawberries and Yogurt 
makes 4 servings

8 wonton wrappers
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided into two portions
2 teaspoons raw sugar
12 almonds, finely chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced in half

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Place the wonton wrappers on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush each wrapper with the melted butter.
3. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle over the top of each wrapper. Then, sprinkle each wrapper with the finely chopped almonds.
4. Place in the oven, and bake for five minutes, or until crisp and lightly browned. Check the wonton wrappers when the time is nearly up -- they can brown up quite quickly. (As witnessed (or, well, not witnessed until too late, anyway) with my first batch, oops!)
5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place the wrappers on a cooling rack.
6. Mix the remaining cinnamon into the Greek yogurt. Set aside.
7. Assemble the dessert. Place one crisp wonton on a plate. Top with a small scoop of cinnamon yogurt. Add a 1/2 T of honey on top of the yogurt. Next add the strawberry slices. Finally, finish it all off with another crisp wonton.
8. Serve immediately.
