APPLE FRITTERS

butter-flavored shortening for frying

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground allspice
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 cups chopped apples

In a deep-fryer or deep saucepan, heat 2-inches of the shortening to 375 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, allspice, milk, eggs, and butter. Stir with a wire whisk until just blended. Fold in the apples. Drop the batter by level tablespoons into the hot oil. Be careful not to splatter and burn yourself! Fry a few at a time for 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once or twice. Drain on cookie sheet lined with a double layer of paper towels. Serve warm with maple syrup or dust with powdered sugar. Keep warm in a 175 degree oven if necessary.
