Now to the recipe!  I have wanted to make these since I saw them at the State Fair years ago. Those apple frites were dipped in funnel cake batter and sprinkled with powdered sugar. They were like eating a miniature apple pie! In fact, you could order a scoop of vanilla ice cream to go with them.

I wanted to make these a bit more nutritionally friendly, so I made mine with graham cracker from Nairn's (gluten-free) and fried them up with an air fryer.  I chose this air fryer because I had heard great reviews about it. We really love it and we work it like a workhorse.


Some tips for making these apple fries:  keep the slices rather thick. The thin ones seem to be less delicious. The thicker ones have a tiny bit of crunch and more apple flavor. Be sure to peel the apple as the skin doesn't do well in the air fryer. If you want, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste to the dip. It deepens the flavor!
