Caprese Purses

Food and sex have been linked since the dawn of civilization.  If there are two things that men love more than anything, it's eating and having sex. This can be a problem if you make a large filling meal that makes a mess and leaves you feeling bloated. That is ok a lot of the time, but when you want to get frisky... not so much. Enter finger foods. Easy to eat and they are sensual when shared in a romantic setting with your partner. 

Romantic Tip: Make a bunch of finger foods and spend the evening feeding them to each other. 
So tonight I made cute Caprese purses to share with my husband. They went perfectly with a nice bottle of wine and some candles. 

Caprese Purses
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes
10 large FRESH basil leaves
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 TBSP fresh minced garlic, divided
1 teaspoon italian seasoning, divided
1/2  teaspoon salt,
1/2 teaspoons black pepper
won ton wrappers
Slice mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Cut up your cherry tomatoes into 4 pieces each. Chop up your basil and mince your garlic. Add tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic, italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to a bowl and stir. 
Lay out won ton wrapper and place one tablespoon of the caprese mixture in the center of the rectangle. 
Top this with 1 teaspoon of sliced mozzarella.
Rub edges of the won ton with butter and squeeze closed.
Repeat until all of the caprese mixture is gone.
Place pastry on a baking sheet or baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven.
