Yes, you do need deep fried sweet apple dough in your life. And yes it should be covered in powdered sugar, why not? This was my first time making apple fritters. My son spotted some in Target, and I said no, but later gave in and made them at home. They are really easy to do. Just whip up the batter, and fry it until browned. You can find my recipe for apple fritters at the Family Kitchen.
