If you’re asking me, Apple Fritters are one of the very best things about fall. Every year my family goes apple picking, and on that trip I never fail to get a fresh, warm Apple Fritter from the farm stand. I might look forward to the fritter more than the apple picking, but can you blame me? Fresh apple flavor with that doughy doughnut bite and delicately crisp sugary glaze… there’s a lot to love. Except that maybe they aren’t right within reach in your home kitchen. But with this recipe, they can be! And you only need your oven and a few simple ingredients to make it happen.
FOR THE FRITTERS:
1 (16 oz) tube flaky biscuits
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 large apple, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons butter, melted
FOR THE GLAZE:
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-6 teaspoons water
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spray with cooking spray.
Separate biscuit dough and cut each biscuit into 10 pieces.
In a large bowl, combine biscuits, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and stir until well coated. Add apple and stir to combine.
Spoon mixture out in 1/4 cup increments onto prepared baking sheet and shape and press each scoop to hold together. Drizzle melted butter over fritters.
Bake until golden brown, 14-17 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and water. Spoon over fritters, and serve warm.
