Passover Apple Fritters

Bookmark and Share
Passover Seder PlateImage via WikipediaI just looked in the cigar box I got from my Mom (La Corona Belvederes) that contains her recipes, some handwritten.  As April 19, 2011 is the first day of Passover, I would like to share Mom's recipe for Apple Fritters, my favorite Passover dessert. It really brings back warm memories.

Apple Fritters

3 tart apples (like Granny Smith), peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup Matzo Meal
3 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons melted chicken fat (Schmaltz)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix all ingredients except apples, together in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Add apples.
Drop by large spoonfuls about the size of a Potato Latke,  in hot oil, heated to 375 degrees and fry until golden brown.  Drain on brown paper (or paper towels)

Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture liberally, on both sides of warm fritters.
 Good warm, good cold.  Happy Passover (Pesach)
