Southern Tier Creme Brulee Banana Wontons with Creme Brulee Ice Cream


The name says it all. Another beer from Southern Tier that tastes like a decadent dessert. Just the smell of it is amazing. Butterscotch, caramel, and a hint of coffee. How could I not make a dessert with this? I had some left over wontons and thought of making banana wontons. Then I remembered the Creme Brulee and I decided to go all out and make banana wontons with the bananas cooked in Creme Brulee, Creme Brulee ice cream, and a Creme Brulee syrup. The ice cream itself is simply the perfect ice cream flavor. It's like butterscotch and coffee ice cream combined. Two of my favorite flavors! I even added some butter to the ice cream to highlight the butterscotch. I'll post the ice cream recipe another day when I redo it so I can write it all down. The beer was instantly compatible with the banana, cinnamon, and caramel flavors throughout the dessert. And the syrup... I should keep that on hand at all times. Here's the recipe for the wontons and syrup.

banana wontons:
2 bananas
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp Creme Brulee
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp butter
20 wonton wrappers
oil for frying

sauce:
1/4 cup Creme Brulee
1 tbsp butter
cinnamon
2 tbsp sugar

For the wontons, melt the butter over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for about 10 minutes. Fill each wonton with a teaspoon of the filling. Seal the edges with water and pat out any air.  Heat a large pan over high heat and fill with enough oil for frying. When the oil is hot, add the wontons. Reduce the heat to medium and cook on both sides until golden brown.
For the syrup, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Cook until thickened.
