    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Using serrated knife, cut each biscuit horizontally to within 1/2 inch from edge to form a pocket. Spoon about 2 tablespoons apple mixture in center of each split biscuit; firmly pinch edges to seal. Shape each biscuit into 2 1/2x3 1/2-inch oval.
  • 4
    In hot oil, place 2 biscuits at a time; cook 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until deep golden brown. Using slotted spoon, remove fritters from oil; place on cooling rack.

    In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar, melted butter and 1 tablespoon milk. If necessary, add additional milk 1 teaspoon at a time until glaze is thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm fritters.

  • You could also serve these for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
