Brownie & Cinnamon Bun Potstickers


  • 1 package. Wonton Wrappers

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1/3 cup water

  • Hot Fudge

  • Cinnamon Bun Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 large egg

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • Brownie filling:

  • 1/4 cup of flour

  • 1/3 cup of Sugar

  • 1/3 cup of cocoa Powder

  • 1/4 cup of Butter

  • 35 grams Dark Chocolate, melted

  • 1 egg

  • Cream cheese glaze:

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

  • 2-ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place all the ingredients for the cinnamon bun filling in a bowl and whisk together until smooth. Set aside for 10 minutes. Repeat for the brownie batter filling.

  2. To fill wonton wrappers place 1 tablespoon amount of either the cinnamon filling or brownie filling in the center and then dip a finger in some cold water and run it along the outer edge as glue. Be careful not to over fill. Bring the outside edges together to seal the filling within in whichever way you'd prefer but ensuring no filling can seep out. Place a small amount of oil in a saucepan and heat over medium. Place wontons in pan in a fanned out circle and cook until they've browned slightly on the bottom. Pour in 1/3 cup water and cover with a lid for 5-7 minutes or until all water is evaporated.

  3. For the cream cheese glaze combine all ingredients and blend using an electric mixer until smooth. Drizzle over the cinnamon bun potstickers and finish with a dusting of cinnamon. To finish the brownie potstickers drizzle with some hot fudge.

- I want to find the ultimate comfort food. So I asked you to send me suggestions over Twitter and I matched 'em all together and well we made something. Alright so this time around I got a lotta suggestions. I got a lot more sweet suggestions. I had a lotta potstickers, chocolate brownies, some people saying cinnamon buns. And so I thought brilliant. Brownie cinnamon bun potstickers. I don't know, I don't know. So let's begin. I'm gonna go with two different batters. I'm gonna keep the brownie gyoza separate from the cinnamon bun gyoza so you get like iconic tastes of each. But let's start with the cinnamon bun batter. I got flour, baking powder, cinnamon, this is basically just a recipe for like waffle batter or pancake batter, and brown sugar. Those are all my dry ingredients. I'm just gonna give that a whisk. Then I have got some milk, I've got one egg. And then a little bit of melted butter pour that over top. And whisk that together. Now a normal batter you wanna be fairly runny cuz you wanna be able to like drizzle it onto your hot pan, but because these are going in gyoza I want it to be a little more substantial. I'm gonna let it set for 10 minutes cuz oftentimes baking powder will like figure itself out in 10 minutes and it kinda gets a little bit thick. So you'll leave that for a second. And let's work on the brownies. Alright once again dry ingredients all going in together. Got a little bit flour and some cocoa powder. Got some sugar going in, beautiful. Give that a whisk. And then to that I'm gonna add my egg, then a little bit of melted butter's going over top. And then my melted chocolate. Let's mix that all together just incorporate that. Might add a touch more flour but again we're gonna let this sit for about five, 10 minutes while I grab the wonton wrappers. Alright so I've got my wonton wrappers here and I've got just a damp paper towel covering them and a little bit of water cuz I like to use that as glue. Alright so you're gonna grab one, put it right on your board get a little bit in the center. You really don't wanna overfill it otherwise you're gonna have a super hard time sealing it. Then take a little bit of water, ooh is this gonna work? Okay and now I'm gonna just pleat it. Well I can pleat it look at that. Oh that looks awesome. Okay, super. Alright let's try the brownie one. Alright I don't think they look so bad. The cinnamon bun batter gave me a little bit of trouble cuz again it was just like a little more liquid-y, but overall I'd say great job thus far. So let's get them cooked. I've got my pan over here that I wanna get onto a medium heat, and I'm just gonna add a little bit of vegetable oil. And I wanna heat that up, so we get the oil not too too hot not like smoking hot, but hot enough. And then I'm gonna arrange my wontons just in a little kinda fanned out pattern. And I'm just gonna cook them until I sorta see a little color, you see a little golden brown on the bottom. And that's when I'm gonna add a third of cup of water and I'm gonna cover them and they're gonna finish steaming and cooking all the way through. Alright while those are finishing up and they're cooking all the way through, I wanna make the cream cheese icing that is iconic with cinnamon buns. So in my little bowl here I'm gonna go in with some cream cheese and a little bit of softened butter. I'm just gonna work those two together. To that I'm gonna add my icing sugar, just a little bit at a time. Mix that in together. I have got my vanilla here, beautiful. And then I wanna add milk until I get to that nice drizzling consistency. Alright you guys I think I think we may have done something good, you and me together. This is a great relationship. I don't know if you've noticed but thank you so much for watching. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It's a weird one. If you have any crazy, cool ideas you should probably use Snapchat and Snap them at me. I am @feelingpeckish and I will see you next time.
