It was only deserving he should be treated when he came in....to some fresh, homemade apple fritters!
1-1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mom's apple pie filling
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Oil for frying
Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add milk, pie filling vanilla, and butter. Stir until combined. Scoop with small cookie scoop into hot oil (I usually test the oil with a little dough before I strat dropping the fritter dough all in - if it sizzles and bubbles, it is ready! OR you can use a candy thermometer and heat the oil to 350-375.)
Flip fritters once to brown evenly, remove from hot oil and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve to the boy who just had a good workout in the wind shovelling and cleaning out snow!
