Makes 2 dozen
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, diced
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup whole milk
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder
Vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp. apple juice
1 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
In a medium mixing bowl combine apples, sugar and cinnamon. Set aside for 15 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg and vanilla. Add apple mixture and mix.
Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix dry ingredients into batter.
Heat the oil in a large skillet to 365-370° F.
Using an ice cream scoop, carefully scoop one to two scoops of the mixture into the hot oil and fry until golden brown on all sides. Remove from oil and drain on a cooling rack over a paper toweled lined baking sheet.
In a different mixing bowl, whisk together glaze ingredients and dip fritters into glaze. Return fritters to rack for a couple minutes to allow glaze to set up.
