Diane Hopson's notes for this recipe:
Apple 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!

Kimi, you can't eat just one and I bet you can't eat just one of your Blueberry & White Pancake puppies either. I love blueberries and I will be giving your recipe a try! Thanks!

Carol, I will never forget that fun vacation with my brother and his family. I had just gone through a divorce and this trip lifted my sprits more than anyone could possibly know. These fritters are a real treat and a reminder of how special my family is. Hope you enjoy!
