makes 24 blossoms
For an impressive and quick dessert, try these honey blossoms. Though they look like delicate flowers, they are are very simple to make, with a secret crust: wonton wrappers!
  • 6 ounces Mascarpone cheese
  • ⅓ cup honey creme (about 5 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest (or if you must, 1 teaspoon dried orange peel)
  • pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 24 wonton wrappers

Preheat oven to 425˚F. Spray a mini-muffin tin, or grease it. Press one wonton wrapper into each of the 24 wells of the prepared tin, letting the points stick out.

In a medium bowl, beat the Mascarpone, honey creme, orange peel/zest, and salt until thoroughly blended.

In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg with the heavy cream, then pour that mixture into the cheese/honey, and stir to combine.

Put a spoonful of the filling into each of the wontons; there should be just enough to fill each one.

Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from oven and let stand, undisturbed, at least 10 minutes. Carefully remove from the tin and let the blossoms cool on a rack.

Garnish as desired – I used candied orange peel.

  1. What is “honey creme?”

    This dessert, along with everything else on this site, looks wonderful.
    Thank you for sharing your gifts of marvelous cooking and on-line publishing.

    • Honey creme is nothing more than creamed honey – sometimes called whipped honey. The crystals in it are controlled and it’s rather silky on the tongue. You can find it with the refrigerated dairy products in the grocery store, or Amazon sells it also.
