Warm Apple Fritters

Warm Apple Fritters 
1 cup All Purpose Flour 
¼ cup Sugar 
¾ tsp Salt 
1½ teaspoon Baking Powder 
1 teaspoon Cinnamon 
⅓ cup Milk 
1 Egg 
1 cup Chopped Fuji or Gala Apple

 Oil for frying Glaze: 
2 cups Powdered Sugar 
1½ Tablespoons of milk or more as needed
1 teaspoon vanilla Extract, optional 

Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon. Stir in milk and egg until just combined. Fold in chopped apple. Pour oil into large deep skillet so that it is approximately 2 inches deep. You can also use a large soup pot or dutch oven or even an electric fryer. Heat oil to about 375 degrees. Your oil is ready when a small piece of fritter dough floats to top. Carefully add dough to oil in heaping tablespoons. Cook until brown, about 2 minutes, then carefully flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes, until both sides are golden brown. Transfer briefly to paper towels to absorb excess oil, then transfer to cooling rack. Fry fritters a few at a time. Make glaze by stirring milk and powdered sugar together in a small bowl. Drizzle over apple fritters. Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side. Best served warm
