AppleFritters_MapleLeafFritters are a traditional crispy treat we don’t often hear about anymore, but they’re still going strong at the Maple Leaf Inn in Barnard, Vermont. They complement the building’s “many turn-of-the-century features: gables, dormers, ginger-bread trim . . .” and more.  As the weather gets cooler and apples ripen, it’s a good time to try this comforting recipe.  Fritters work equally well for dessert and brunch — and yes, they’re fried, but you can indulge yourself once in awhile. With just enough sugar and a touch of cinnamon, they’re delicious with syrup or just as is — but they’re best when freshly cooked.
