Apple Fritters Version #2

Crispy on the outside light on the inside & loaded with tender apple!This is a version of Naomi Robinson's Kitchn recipe!
Peel Core & chop into small pieces 4 medium apples, Saute the apple in 3 Tablespoons of butter, 1/4 Cup Sugar, 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon & 1 teaspoon vanilla add a dash of salt. Cook & saute until apples are tender about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool while you mix up the dough!

1 Packet Rapid Rise Yeast
3 & 1/4 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
MIX all together & combine well.
In your mixer & use a dough hook if you have one add to the dry ingredients, 
1/2 Cup Warm Milk
2 Eggs beaten
Mix until dough starts to come together, then add in small pieces 1/3 Cup butter softened adding a little at a time, work into a sticky dough. Lightly oil a deep bowl put dough in the bowl cover & let rise in a warm place until doubled. I turn my oven onto warm, let it heat up, put the covered bowl in close the door & turn off the oven. Dough will take about 1 hour up to 2 hours to rise, depends a lot on the weather! Once doubled, turn out onto a floured surface & roll out into 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Cover with 2/3 of the apple mixture. Fold dough in 1/2 & add the rest of the apple mixture spreading it out evenly. Roll up like a jelly roll, pat down & roll out to an oblong shape. Now cut into 12 even pieces, with floured hands shape each piece folding dough into itself in needed to make slightly oval donut shapes. This is MESSY & looks like it won't work but it does! Place each fritter far enough apart on a cookie sheet & when all are shaped, cover with towel & place back into that warm oven, reheat the oven if needed! Let rise until puffy about 1/2 an hour or so! Puffy then READY TO FRY! Take a large black iron skillet or heavy frying pan & heat shortening until melted, you want 2 inches of oil! Drop a small piece of dough into the hot oil, if it sizzles you are ready, you want hot oil but not smoking! If oil is not hot enough you will get heavy grease sodden fritters! I use medium high setting on my stove! Drop in 2 fritters at time & have a large surface lined heavily with paper towels to lay the fried fritters on to blot up the extra oil! Fry each fritter until a very dark crispy brown & then flip each one over until the bottom side is done! Remove the fritter with slotted spoon or slotted spatula & lay them on the paper towel! Repeat until all 12 are fried! NEXT STEP GLAZE!
In a large glass bowl, melt 3 Tablespoons of butter, I melt mine in the microwave, 45 seconds on high. Add 3 Cups Powdered Sugar, 2 Teaspoons Vanilla, Dash of Salt & mix well. Now add enough milk to get a runny glaze! I heat mine in the microwave again about 1 minute & whisk when done, just to blend everything nicely! Now dip each still warm fritter into the glaze & then sit them back on the paper towel to let the drip. Let them sit until cool & glaze has hardened! A LOT OF WORK? YES! WORTH IT? YES! HAPPY MUNCHING!
