When autumn arrives, the farmers' markets are brimming with apples of every variety. With so many new varieties to try ever year, we're continually creating new recipes to make use of our bushels. When apples are cooked to a soft texture, a little sprinkle of cinnamon transforms them into the perfect simple dessert. Apple fries are another fun way to enjoy apples when you have an abundance. The soft texture of the sweet apple and cinnamon fragrance make for a simple way to enjoy apples as a dessert.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • At least 2 firm apples
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar

Directions

Pour oil in medium saucepan until you have enough oil to immerse apple slices.

Wash, core and slice apples into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Add flour to medium bowl. Lightly dredge each apple slice in flour, coating completely.

Heat oil to 375 degrees F. Gently place apple slices in hot oil. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove apple slices from hot oil. Place on paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Sprinkle warm fried apple slices with ground cinnamon and powdered sugar.
