German Apple Fritters...

Apfelkrapfen are often considered a Bavarian specialty, although everyone knows them and fries them up at home. Slice the apples in the round, cover them with a batter and deep fat fry them for some instant comfort food. This batter has egg whites providing the airiness but yeast dough and puff pastry versions are also known. These are popular at the Amana Arts Guild Art Festival in August, a very special treat for a sweet-tart bite. These will be at other local Amana festivals.
