Ingredients

Batter:

  • 2 Cups pancake mix
  • 1 1/4 Cup milk
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

Filling

  • 4 Ounces cream cheese, strawberry or favorite filling
  • 2 Tablespoons red colored sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 Apples, cored
  • 4 Cups canola oil, for frying

Directions

Batter:

In a bowl, mix together the pancake mix, milk, granulated sugar, and cinnamon until smooth.

 

Filling

In a microwavable bowl, add the cream cheese, red sugar, and cinnamon. Microwave for 40 seconds or until soft. Mix until smooth. Fill core of apple with filling.

Skewer the apples side to side with a metal skewer and dip in batter. Fry in canola oil heated to 375 degrees. Cook until lightly brown. Remove the apples from fryer and allow to cool. Once cool enough to touch, slice the apples so the core forms a circle in middle of slice. Place on sticks to look like lollipops

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
