Cognac Apple Fritters - Cognacæbleskiver

Serves 6 to 8

Peel, core and slice apples and place in a bowl. Pour cognac over them and cover tightly.

Beat the egg yolk and mix with the milk and sugar. Mix well.

Sift the flour into the egg-yolk mixture and add the salt and baking powder. Stir well.

Beat egg white until stiff. Fold into above mixture.

Dip the apple slices in the batter and fry in deep fat heated to 365 degrees for 2 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown on both sides. Dust with powdered sugar while warm.

To make these fritters even more delicious, serve them topped with Rum Sauce or Apple Cream.
