• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped Honeycrisp apple
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Whisk together all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Whisk milk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a cup. Stir into flour mixture just until combined; stir in chopped apple. Use a scoop or spoon to drop 1/4-cup mounds onto prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted near the center of fritter comes out clean, 11 to 12 minutes. Remove to a wire rack.

  5. Preheat the oven’s broiler. Whisk together confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Brush a thin layer of glaze over fritters, and place under broiler.

  6. Broil fritters until glaze is bubbly, about 2 minutes.
