Peach Fritters


This is a dessert I made to take to the Peach Days Committee meeting.
Peach Mixture:
6 peaches, peeled and diced
1/4 c. peach drink ( I used a powdered drink mix mixed with water)
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. sugar

Cook all but peaches in a saucepan for 3-5 minutes, then add peaches. Cool for 10 minutes.

Dough:
1 T. yeast
2 c. peach drink, warmed
1 t. cinnamon
2/3 c. scalded milk
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1 cube melted butter
3 c. flour

Mix well in Bosch mixer, gradually adding additional flour till it's a soft dough. Add cooled peaches and mix gently. Add enough additional flour, if needed, for a soft, sticky dough again. Cover and let rise. Pul a small handful of dough out of bowl and stretch out flat, with fingers, on a floured surface. Cook in 375° oil, turning to brown other side. Drain on paper towels.

Glaze:
1 # powdered sugar
1/2 c. water
1/2 t. vanilla

Mix well with hand mixer. With tongs, dip fritter in glaze, shake excess glaze off and drain on a rack over a cookie sheet.

I have always loved apple fritters, but I've never tasted (or even thought of) a peach fritter. These look absolutely delicious and I'll bet they were a huge hit.
