It's time to start picking all those
Apples in the orchard. I love going
out and picking them off the tree in
the cool crisp Fall weather.
There is just something about
picking apples that makes me start
nostalgic day dreaming.
When you get all those fresh
ripe apples home, I start combing through
old family cook books for recipes.
This is a very simple old fashion recipe
for drop Apple Fritters.
I hope you will take the time to
make a batch with your loved ones
this Fall. You will never regret the
time spent in the kitchen making
memories to last a lifetime.
Old Fashion Apple Fritters
1 Cup. All Purpose Flour
2/3 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Apple Pie Spice
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Applesauce
1/3 C. Buttermilk
1 C. Granny Smith Apples~ Diced
Start by sifting all dry ingredients
together. Add in applesauce, vanilla,
egg and buttermilk. Stir just enough to
mix all together. (DO NOT BEAT)
Then fold in the apple pieces.
Heat oil in a deep pan, on med. heat.
*You can test the oil to see if it is
hot enough by dropping a small
amount of batter in. If it floats its ready!
Using two large spoons, drop dough
into the oil carefully. The dough will float
after a few seconds. Cook on each side
about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Test the center of each fritter to make
sure it is cooked all the way through.
Drain excess oil off by placing
them on paper towels. While still warm
dip each fritter into a *simple icing.
*Icing: 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 TBSP. Milk
