Glazed Apple Pie Fritters

#BakeThisHolidaySpecial - Make some homemade Apple Pie Fritters. There's more than enough to feed your hungry crowd!
Oh my gosh! I made my most favorite, most loved, most desired doughnut ever – Apple Fritters!! And they are so easy to make I really don’t know why I’ve never made them before. I’ve been working with Lucky Leaf pie filling for a few years now and I love getting a nice surprise box from them. For the holiday’s they sent some Cherry, Blueberry and Apple Pie filling for me to play around with. I made the Cherry Pie Cookies and then I made FRITTERS!

Yes, I’m sorry, I must shout it from the mountains! You don’t understand my love of apple fritters.

Homemade Apple Pie Fritters. Easier than you think and cheaper than buying them. #BakeThisHolidaySpecial

They might not be the prettiest donuts on the shelves, but I think that they are the best tasting ones. My love for apple fritters started with my annual visits to my grandparent’s house in the summer. Donuts were not a regular occurrence in our household, and grandmas are the best at spoiling kids! She would go to the store and get a dozen mixes donuts for everyone. There were glazed, chocolate covered, crullers, and some old fashioned cake ones. Grandmas are just the best. Anyway, we would get to pick which one we wanted and I always picked the fritter. 
All those nooks and crannies. The fried, crispy edges and the soft centers with ribbons of cinnamon and chunks of apple – LOVE!
Warm it up for 10 seconds and give me a glass of milk and I was in heaven!

These days, I still love an annual fritter. They are kinda my kryptonite and once I buy one, I may as well buy two. 
Frying up these babies will hold me over for another year. 
What was really awesome were the big chunks of apples in them. I think that the apple is the best part of the fritter. It’s apple pie meets doughnut – what could be better? 

Just to let you know – I found that the smaller ones cooked up better than the large ones that I was trying to replicate. I could also control the amount of glaze. Some had a lot and others just got a light application. I preferred the ones with less glaze.

Apple Pie Fritters

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Keywords: apples donuts

    For the Fritters

    • 4 cups Bisquick Mix
    • 1 cup water
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 can Lucky Leaf Apple Pie Filling
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

    For the Glaze

    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 1/2 – 2 cups powdered sugar
    Preheat 6 cups of oil in a large pot. Heat oil to 350℉.
    Mix the Bisquick, water, eggs, and sugar. Run a knife through the pie filling while in the can to cut the slices into chunks. Pour the apple chunks into the batter and fold in. Add the cinnamon and fold over two times.
    DO NOT mix in the cinnamon. You want ribbons of cinnamon in the fritters.
    Prepare a cookie sheet lined with paper towels and place a wire rack over top.
    Carefully add a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the hot oil and fry. Depending on the size of your pot, you should only cook 3 -4 fritters at a time. Turn the fritters over allowing them to cook for 3 to 4 minutes depending on the size. Use a slotted spoon to lift the fritters out of the oil and place them on the prepared wire rack to cool.
    When all of the fritters are cooked and cooled, make the glaze.
    Heat the milk and sugar in a shallow pan, heating the milk, but not boiling and dissolving the sugar. Turn off the heat and add a fritter to the glaze to coat. Depending on the amount of glaze you want, you may have to dip it twice. If the glaze gets thick, turn the heat back on and thin it out or add a bit more milk.
    Let the glaze set and then serve.
    I suggest slightly warming the fritter and serving them with milk or tea.

    Easy Cherry Pie Thumbprint Cookies

    It’s time to start baking for Christmas! Are you ready? This is a Cherry Pie Cookie recipe I got from Lucky Leaf and I’ve plated them up to deliver them with my beautifully personalized Christmas mini booklet card from Minted.  
    In fact I am feeling so prepared for Christmas this year than I ever had before. Thanks to Minted, I’ve got my Christmas cards in hand with printed envelopes and I’ve got cookies in the freezer. I may not lose my mind in December.

    My husband liked the apple pie cookies, my daughter enjoyed the blueberry pie cookies, and my favorite were the cherry cookies. Although, I’d like to try them with the strawberry and the cranberry apple pie filling. I bet those would be good as well!

    The Minted booklet cards and ornaments that I ordered came out so perfectly! I think the best part is that all of my envelopes came pre-addressed for me. That saved me a night of sitting down writing them out. Such a time saver.

    Blueberry Coconut Mini Pies

    Spring has arrived in the Mid-Atlantic – the birds are chirping and the daffodils are blooming. I love this time of year. Everything, including myself, comes back to life. I can enjoy spending the afternoon outside pulling weeds and getting my hands dirty. I love it!

    It’s also the perfect time for no-bake treats. I admit, I use the oven as a way to heat the house up sometimes. I felt so cold this winter that I would stand in front of my oven when I was done baking and just enjoy the warmth! 

    A few weeks ago Lucky Leaf asked if I would be a taste tester for one of their new pie flavors. I was asked to make their Fluffy Blueberry Cream Pie with Toasted Coconut and give them a review. 
    Well, I loved it! It was easy to make, tasted great, and it’s purple! How many purple desserts are there? I seriously loved the color. It was fun! My daughter got a kick out of it!
    I have to tell you that I am not very good at cutting a graham cracker crust pie… they look horrible when cut. So, I decided to make my version of them mini pies. You can get pre-made mini graham cracker crusts and just fill them up instead. They aren’t quite as impressive as a large pie, but I really like personal sized treats. 
    You know what else I like?? A special delivery of flowers! 
    Lucky Leaf has teamed up with FTD to give all my viewers a $10 savings on select flowers. Head on over to FTD and check out their selection of flowers. Send some to yourself, to your best friend, or to a family member. My mini rose bush sure did brighten up my day.
    Some pie and some flowers will definitely make anyone happy to have you over.
    Thank you to Lucky Leaf for providing me with the pie filling necessary for this recipe

    Blueberry Coconut Mini Pies

    by Karyn Granrud
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Keywords: no-bake blueberry cream cheese pie
    Ingredients (serves 12)
    • 12 mini graham cracker crusts (2 packages)
    • 8-ounce cream cheese
    • 1/3 C Sugar
    • 1 Tbls Milk
    • 2 C Cool Whip (thawed)
    • 21-ounce can LUCKY LEAF® Premium Blueberry Pie Filling
    • 1 C Coconut Flakes, small and large flakes (I used unsweetened)
    Toast your coconut either on the stove top in a large skillet over medium heat or in the oven on a cookie sheet at 350 for 5 minutes. Remove and cool.
    Cream the sugar, milk, and cream cheese until smooth.
    Fold in the Cool Whip and blueberry pie filling. The color should be uniform and no white should remain. Fold in 3/4 of the toasted coconut.
    Place the mini crusts on to a cookies sheet and spoon the filling into them. Top with a sprinkle of the leftover coconut, cover and chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
