"The recipe for these golden sugar-topped puffs comes from my mother," writes Pat Klingler from her home in Ashtabula, Ohio. "They are a great way to warm up a cool day. I like to fry them up when I have friends come for coffee."

"My daughter and I really like these. They are a nice change from heavy, rich desserts and a great way to use up extra apple. My daughter requests them often! Thanks for sharing."
