Coconut Mangoons

I went to a tropical themed party this weekend.  My contribution:  coconut mangoons.  I had some leftover desiccated coconut from making lamingtons for Australia Day.  And I wanted to make something vegetarian.  And you really can't go wrong with cream cheese.  I baked them, and the sugar from the mango slightly carmelized and came out delicious.  I give you:

Coconut Mangoons
~ 2 mango, diced (I used frozen mango cause I couldn't find ripe ones)
1 scallion, thinly sliced
desiccated coconut (unsweetened) (I shook in a bunch, maybe 3T)
cayenne and salt to taste
juice from half a lime
cream cheese
wonton wrappers

Mix up the first 5 ingredients to make a salsa.  Put ~1/2t of cream cheese in a wrapper, add about 4 dices of mango salsa.  Moisten the edges of the wonton and fold over to close.  Spray lightly with oil, and bake for 12-15 minutes at 425.
