An Apple A Day

After my last apple picking trip, I had enough Granny Smiths to keep the doctor away until my hair turns grey. My Louis Vuitton held so much fresh fruit that even Martha Stuart would be overwhelmed. I was on a doB mission to get to the core of exactly the best way to use those apples.
When any holiday comes around my adrenaline and credit card bills spike. I love having themed food parties for my friends, and Fall is no different. With apples, pumpkins, carrots, and squash in the forefront, I always look forward to getting out my cookbooks, putting on my cozy sweaters, and starting to plan with a hot apple cider in hand.
With my enormous bushel in tow I could have easily made my friends bob for that cancer preventing, pectin rich snack, but instead, I decided to satisfy their sweet tooth with a baked bone protector. Since apples are packed with Vitamin C and tons of soluble fiber, you can stay fuller and away from that candy corn a bit longer.
Unless you get your check ups from Dr. McDreamy, chef doB has created a Baked Apple Fritter recipe that will help keep you from wasting time in the waiting room, so you can spend your precious time with family and friends. Yes, even Grandma Sophia who always asks, “When will you be getting married!”
So pick proudly, bake boldly, and be the hosting apple of your cocktail party’s eye.

Fold in the apples until well coated. Place batter ¾ high into a greased mini muffin baking pan and bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until tooth pick can come out dry from the center. Once done removed from the pan and place on a rack to cool.

For the glaze mix together 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp milk. Make sure to mix well until all the lumps have disappeared. Then drizzle over your mini bites
