Sunday’s with Joy: Boozy Apple Crisp Blossoms

Fall is in the air.

Starbucks has their pumpkin latte on the menu

I need extra socks when I jump in bed

And everyone has started baking with cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin.

If that doesn’t scream fall I don’t know what does.

Fall is actually my favourite of all seasons. The leaves changing, the dipping of temperature causing you to have to get a little snuggly with you blankets and let’s not even start with fall fashion.

Two words: Cable Knits … I love it! And tweed pants.  And scarves. And cute leather jackets with fabulous booties. Clearly I can get carried away.

And the change in weather also calls for a change in food. Bring on the warm comfort food. Let’s sprinkle cinnamon everywhere, make a casserole with extra gooey cheese, pop a pie in the oven and plug your slow cooker in … comfort – comfort – comfort. Ohhhhh yeeeaaaaa!! I get abnormally excited about these things.

True story.

The ladies and gents of Sunday’s with Joy have also gotten in the fall mood with this week’s recipe. The fabulous Joy Wilson’s Man-bait apple crisp.

Let’s talk: Man-bait … love it! Apple crisp … love it! Granted I made it … and of course, I added my little touch of the sweet life.

I made them pretty and portable. There’s rum. I subbed almonds for pecans.  I also used fewer apples and added maple syrup. I topped it with caramel and well, they weren’t just coaxing boys to the yard but I know a certain Mama LTSL that had to have one for dessert.

Boozy Apple Crisp Blossoms

 Blossom Shells:

36 WonTon Skins

2 Tbsp dark rum

1/4 Cup Water

3 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1 Tsp Cinnamon powder


Prepare 12-cup muffin tray.

In a small bowl, mix together rum, water, maple syrup and cinnamon. Lightly brush each wonton skin with mixture and arrange 3 skins per muffin cup.


 Joy’s recipe- except; 4 apples were used and the excess simple syrup above was also added.  


Joy’s recipe – except; Almonds were used instead of pecans and I added 1/4 cups of Flax seeds.


Preheat oven to 350 oc.

Fill each blossom shell with the apple filling and top with crumble.

Bake according to recipe.

 Fall in love with the cinnamon-sugar rush sweethearts … (see what I did there … ha! – – I seriously am my own best friend because of my corny jokes … sorry).

Stay sweet xo
