And Apple Fritters are so perfect this time of year. What a better way to say welcome to Fall than with a hot drink and homemade fritters?

8 cups unpeeled apples, thinly sliced
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
1 1/2 cups applesauce
1 cup uncooked oats
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1 cup vanilla fat-free yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the apple slices with the granulated sugar, lemon juice and half the cinnamon. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and spoon the mixture into the dish. Spread the applesauce over the apple mixture.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine th oats, brown sugar, flour, both milks and other half of the cinnamon. Spread this mixture over the applesauce.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with the yogurt.

butter-flavored shortening for frying
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground allspice
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 cups chopped apples

In a deep-fryer or deep saucepan, heat 2-inches of the shortening to 375 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, allspice, milk, eggs, and butter. Stir with a wire whisk until just blended. Fold in the apples. Drop the batter by level tablespoons into the hot oil. Be careful not to splatter and burn yourself! Fry a few at a time for 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once or twice. Drain on cookie sheet lined with a double layer of paper towels. Serve warm with maple syrup or dust with powdered sugar. Keep warm in a 175 degree oven if necessary.
