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.
Two Variety of Apples
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 apples.
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).
Notice the chunks of apples and the flecks of apple pie spice?
A dusting of powdered sugar is also a tasty option. Simply sprinkle on the desired amount.
Rustic Apple Pie Fritters are best when served warm! Although leftovers taste fine, they just are not the same as fresh.
Depending on the size you make, one complete recipe will make approximately 15 to 20 fritters.
