This is a recipe I created for Trader Joes " hope some of you ladies out there know the store". I was hired as the demo coordinator for the first store in Michigan. At first I started having the crew just put out samples of TJs products, but after the store was open a few weeks, I really went into full swing making recipes and having our crew actually demo snacks, main courses, desserts etc.....this was a huge success and the mid west reps came in and videoed me doing what a successful demo should be " that was my 15 of fame " They then used that as a training video for the rest of the stores.

How to Make Beggar's purses with goat cheese sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Take the 2 wontons and cut them into 6 strips each and set aside.
  2. Boil the potatoes till they are soft. Cool slightly, peel and mash with heavy cream, salt, pepper, butter. Set aside.
  3. Cook the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice down till it is reduce almost by half.
  4. Mix the potato and pumpkin mixture together making sure it is completely incorporated. Taste for additional salt and pepper if necessary.
  5. For the sauce with a mixer, mix the pumpkin pie filling, the goat cheese, heavy cream and salt. Set aside. Just before serving mix in the fresh sage. Keep this cold till you are serving the pillows.
  6. Take each wonton and lay it flat. Put about 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each wonton. Bring all four corners up to the center. Wet one side of each of the strips and put the wet side towards the wonton and wrap around pressing as you go to make sure they seal. Cross each end over to make an X and press into the wonton slightly.
  7. When all the wontons are filled you’ll want to simmer these in enough water to just cover them, till they are translucent and float to the top, maybe 5 minutes DO NOT BOIL THESE as they will fall apart. Drain and serve with the sauce.
  8. I did post that this is not my picture of the finished recipe, but I wanted to give you an idea of what the purses should look like.
