I hate to admit it, but I made Rustic Apple Pie Fritters three times just in one week! The first time I made them, my parents happened to be over for dinner. Although the fritters turned out good, the apple and cinnamon flavors were faint.
My second attempt was better because I added more spices and a touch of applesauce, however, I nailed it the third time around.
In my attempts at perfecting the recipe, I tried using two different kinds of apples. The first time I only used one Granny Smith apple.
For the second and third attempts, I used one Granny Smith apple and one Red Delicious Apple. In the end, my family and I agreed that the combination of the two resulted in the best overall flavor, however, you can certainly use your favorite variety of apple.
My mother was kind enough to share the secret to her glaze recipe with me. It is quick and easy to create and reminds me of the glaze on Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It’s simply a combination of powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and Knox gelatin (the gelatin helps the glaze set up).
Can you see where a bite was taken out of a fritter? Notice the chunks of apples and the flecks of apple pie spice?
