My kids love these fritters year-round, but I get even more requests in the fall when there are plenty of apples in season. I like to serve them as a special breakfast treat when they host friends for sleepovers. —Katie Beechy, Seymour, Missouri

"Only one word comes to mind for these! WOW! Oh, so yummy!

The only change we made was to use a non-dairy creamer instead of the dry milk powder. It's a lactose intolorence thing."

"I Love that this recipe does not have cinnamon! Rarely do you find apple anything without cinnamon, being allergic to it makes it difficult this time of year! I will definitely be making these this weekend!"
