Blend together until pureed, if too thick add milk to right consistency, add salt and pepper to taste. Meanwhile, boil 3 quarts of water (or steam if you prefer). Fill each wonton square with 1 tbs of the puree, brush all four edges with egg wash and top with another wonton square, seal the edges with fingers or press lighltly with fork. Boil or steam for 8-10 mins. Prepare sage butter by melting 3 tbs of butter with the fresh sage. Pour over wontons and serve.
