  3. Using tongs, place one circle in the oil for about 5 seconds. Flip it over and fold it in half holding it folded for about 5 seconds or until browned.

  4. Flip over and fry the other side until crispy. Immediately remove from the oil giving it a little shake and place into the cinnamon sugar.

  5. Set on a pan to cool.

  6. To create the filling, start by peeling and dicing apples. Toss with lemon juice.

  7. Over medium heat stir together butter, chopped apples, cinnamon and brown sugar.

  8. Add about ¼ cup of water and let cook on medium heat for about 4 minutes. Stir 1 teaspoon cornstarch into remaining water and add to pan.
