Big Apple Fritters!!!


Apple fritters bring back memories from various times in my life and all are fond memories! From family vacations, county fairs in the summertime, a small country store near our house that made them in house and were always fresh and served in a paper bag, to my mom making them for us as a treat. There is nothing like a fresh, warm, perfectly glazed apple fritter!

I remember the first time my kids enjoyed a freshly made apple fritter and how they were in heaven – sticky faces and fingers with huge smiles. This recipe is fantastic and easy to make at home. When you have a craving, or need a nostalgic treat, you can have apple fritters in no time. You don’t need to wait for a special event or trek to find a country store that makes them fresh!

They go so well with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of milk for an afternoon treat. You will not be disappointed!
