2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg

3. Arrange the wonton wrappers in two stacks on your work surface and cut them in half on the diagonal. Place the wontons on two ungreased baking sheets, being sure that they don’t overlap.

4. In another small bowl, whisk the egg with a fork. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of the wonton wrappers on one of the baking sheets (work with just one pan at a time so the egg doesn’t dry out before you add the cinnamon-sugar).

5. Sprinkle each egg-brushed wonton with a generous pinch or two of cinnamon-sugar.

6. Repeat with the second sheet of wontons.

7. Bake until the edges of the wontons turn golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes.

8. Let cool on the baking sheets for 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
