Apple Fritters

Makes about 20 Frittelle

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tsablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup cold water

To Prepare

1. In a bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the tablespoon of olive oil and the egg yolks. Start adding the water and mixing. When all the water has been added, the batter should be like a thick pancake batter; if needed, add more water. Add grappa, set aside to rest for 1 hour.

2. Peel and core the apples, then slice them into 1/4-inch circles. Place the slices in a bowl and squese the juice of the lemon over them and toss to coat. Mix the 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon together.

3. When the batter has rested for an hour, heat the oil in a saucepan to 375° F.

4. Dip the apple slices in the batter and fry in preheated hot oil until golden brown on both sides, 2-3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
