Baked Apple Fritters

I LOVE apple fritters, so when I found a recipe for baked ones, I knew I would try.  We really liked these, but I think next time I would make double the filling and not skimp on it.
Baked Apple Fritters

 2 1/4 tsp yeast
1 cup  warm milk
4 tbsp butter
2 2/3 – 3  cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 egg

Warm the butter with the milk (it will not be melted completely) Sprinkle the yeast over the milk and
let sit a few minutes.  Mix in the sugar, add in 1/2 the flour, egg, milk and the rest of the flour.  Mix until everything is combined and the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Cover and let rise until doubled (about 1 – 1 1/2 hours)

While the dough is rising, prepare the filling:

Peel and dice 2 apples.   Melt 2 tbsp butter and add in the apples.  Sprinkle 2 tbsp sugar and 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon over apples and cook over med-low until the apples become soft.
Once dough is risen, roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or a glass(Beth used a wide mouth jar ring) Place 1 tbsp filling in the center of each circle.  Fold dough over the filling – pinching seams together.  Place seam side down on lined baking sheet.  Cover and let rise for 30 – 40 minutes

Bake @400 for 20 minutes.

Once cool, brush with melted butter and roll in sugar and cinnamon {you could also use glaze if you prefer}
