Apple Fritters

Note:  Another favorite fair food of my hubs' is the apple fritters.    He likes the ones that are fried crispy.

Apple Fritters

oil for deep frying
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. milk
1 T. shortening, melted
1 c. apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. powdered sugar
1 t. cinnamon


Add enough oil to a deep fryer or Dutch oven to equal a depth of 3 inches. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg and milk; stir in shortening and apples. In a separate bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture. Mix well and drop by tablespoonfuls into 365-degree hot oil. Fry about 4 minutes or until golden, turning to brown all sides evenly. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon; drain on several layers of paper towels. Toss powdered sugar and cinnamon together; roll fritters in the sugar mixture. Serve warm. Makes 6 to 8.
