Ingredients
  • 2 ounces Jack Daniels
  • 6 ounces maple syrup
  • 1 papaya, small dice
  • 8 figs, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash
  • 12 wonton skins
Directions
  • In a sauce pot, add the whiskey and carefully flambe. When the flames have died down, add the syrup. Reduce by a 1/3 and reserve. In a bowl, combine the papaya, figs, 1 tablespoon of the powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Egg wash the edges of 1/2 the wonton skin, and place a 1/4 size dollop of the papaya combo in the center and fold the wonton. Repeat for each wonton.

  • Preheat a deep fryer or a large pot halfway filled with oil to 360 degrees F.

  • Fry the wontons for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until skin is brown and bubbly. Remove and toss with 1 tablespoon of powered sugar. To plate, place in a bowl with the sauce in the center as focus. Fan the wontons and dust with remaining powdered sugar.
