Thyme-Apple Fritters

Serves 6



¾ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
¼ cup sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
⅓ cup milk
1 egg
1 cup Cortland apple, chopped fine
3 cups canola oil, for frying



2 cups powdered sugar
1 ½ tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg


Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon.  Stir in milk and egg until just combined.  Fold in apple.  In large pot, heat oil to 375°F. Carefully add dough to oil in heaping teaspoons.  Cook until brown, about 2 minutes, then flip.  Cook another 1-2 minutes, until both sides are browned.  Transfer briefly to paper towels to absorb excess oil, then transfer to cooling rack.  Make glaze by stirring milk, herbs, nutmeg and powdered sugar together in a small bowl.  Drizzle over apple fritters.  Wait approximately 3 minutes for glaze to harden, then flip fritters and drizzle glaze over the other side.  Best served warm.
