Number of Servings: 8

6 Apricots halved
12 Whole almonds
2 Tablespoon(s) White rum
1/2 Cup(s) Unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 Cup(s) Cornstarch
3 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1/2 Cup(s) Water, plus
1 Tablespoon(s) Water
3 Tablespoon(s) Melted butter
1 1/2 Quart(s) Vegetable oil, for frying
Confectioners' sugar, Confectioners' sugar
RINSE THE APRICOTS, slit the sides and remove the pits with a small
spoon, leaving the apricots intact. Replace each pit with an almond.
Place the apricots in a bowl and sprinkle the slit sides with the rum.
For the batter, combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk in the
water, then the melted butter. Pour the oil into a 4-quart pan and
heat it to 350F. With a fork, dip the apricots into the batter and add
to the hot oil 3 or 4 at a time, frying them about 6 or 7 minutes,
until the batter is a deep golden and the apricots are cooked, but
still firm. Drain the fritters on absorbent paper as they are fried
and keep them warm in a 300F oven. To serve, sprinkle the fritters
generously with confectioners' sugar. From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster
