Deep Fried Macadamia Net-Brie Won Tons and Pineapple-Papaya Marmalade

Wonton Wrappers
Fine Chopped Macadamia Nuts
Brie Cheese
Oil for deep-frying 
Egg Whites

Pineapple-Papaya Marmalade:
1 cup Chopped Fresh Papaya
1 cup chopped pineapple (fresh or canned)
1 cup Granulated Sugar
Pinch of chili pepper flakes (optional)

Procedure: Take a wonton wrapper and brush some egg whites in the center. Place a ball of Brie cheese in the center. You can sprinkle some chopped macadamia nuts or any other kind of nut just before sealing the wonton. Press down on the center while carefully collecting the wonton corners making a small purse; carefully pinches above the Brie cheese to seal. The wonton wrapper should fan out at the top, with the overall effect being one of a miniature gift. Once they are ready, heat frying liquid in a deep pot or wok to 350º F. Deep fry to a golden brown and serve hot.

In a medium saucepan, combine pineapple, papaya, and sugar.  Bring to a boil and let simmer uncovered, as it will thicken to a syrupy consistency. It will take 45 minutes or less for canned pineapple
