Diane Hopson's StoryApple Fritters are a wonderful fall treat! In 1995 my brother and his wife invited me and my daughter to go on vacation with them and their young grandson. We went to several places in Tennessee. One of the places we visited, that I will never forget, is the Apple Barn in Sevierville, Tennessee. We ate at their Restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At each of these meals they served these wonderful Apple Fritters. I wanted the recipe and just so happened they had this recipe on a post card in one of the shops there. Now I have these wonderful little fritters anytime I want em. Hope you enjoy!
