Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
In a saute pan melt the butter and add the sliced apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Saute until sugar is melted and apples are soft. Remove from heat. If you wanted a little more sauce you could add a touch of cream or brandy, (or both)!
Divide the dough into 4 – 6 balls depending on the size fritters you want. Work out into disks. Fry in a large saute pan with about an inch of oil over medium high heat or if you have a thermometer at about 350-360 degrees. Turn once after bottom side is a nice golden brown and brown the other side. Transfer to a paper towel lined tray. At this point you could just dust them with powdered sugar and call it a day or top with your apple topping, pecans, and then the powdered sugar. Best when eaten fresh, but can be reheated in the oven!
