Yield: 4 as a dessert or snack

  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Vin Santo or other dessert wine
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chestnut flour
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting the fritters
  • Place the apple slices in a bowl and sprinkle with the Vin Santo and the granulated sugar. Cover and set aside for 1 hour. Mix together both types of flour, the egg yolk, and the white wine. Beat the egg white in a separate bowl until fluffy. Fold the egg white gently into the flour mixture. Drain the apples and mix gently into the batter. Heat 1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Drop a 5-inch round of batter in the skillet, cook until golden brown on one side, flip and cook likewise on the other side. This should take about 3 minutes (1 1/2 minutes per side). Remove, drain, dust with the confectioners' sugar, and serve.
