Oooh what a birthday treat! Friends, fried dough and bourbon ice cream!? We’ll request the exact celebration for our next bday. And really, those honeycrisps, they’re like a whole new level of apple amazing.
Oh, you guys–you are all so sweet! Thanks for the birthday wishes and for always making this a space I enjoy being in (especially on days when the news of the world is kind of depressing) This is a seriously good recipe, I hope you give it a try and tell me about it.
And yes, Beth, fried bourbon ice cream is the next step.
One of my favorite restaurants just put apple fritters with cinnamon ice cream on the menu and it was fantastic. The prospect of making this at home is such a beautiful thought, but I’m seriously afraid of deep frying. Thanks for sharing and happy birthday!
Hey Martin, A glaze isn’t my speed, so I haven’t tried it. It would make them more difficult to eat and also I don’t like the idea of glaze + ice cream. BUT, if you were just making the fritters I could imagine it being nice. Maybe a cinnamon glaze.
Thanks for all of the good wishes, everyone!
This kind of sounds like a candidate for a “last meal.” Nothing better than a good apple fritter and bourbon in anything makes me happy. Happy birthday. Sounds like you got yourself a keeper (Bryan) on your hands :)
Hi, Tim. I’m a brand-new reader since spotting your interview over at A Dinner Party, and I can already tell I’ll be back frequently. So many types of hot-pink ice cream here! Thanks for so many good-lookin’ recipes, and happy birthday!
Ack! This was a near miss! I had my October issue of Bon Appetit in a stack of magazines I give to a friend when I’ve finished them. And to think, I have a lovely bag of honeycrisps in my kitchen right now. Obviously I need to re-read my magazine. What other recipes did I ignore? Happy Birthday from your Wheaton reader!
Hey Tim, just discovered your site and love the photos and recipe. This is a great kids type of dish that has a grown up touch with the bourban. Happy birthday and I look forward to reading more great posts.
