2  cups  rice flour
1/3  cup  finely chopped apple
1/2  cup  applesauce
1/4  tsp  salt
3  Tbsp  sugar
1/3  cup + 1 Tbsp  rice milk, apple juice or cider
1/4  cup  sugar
1/2  Tbsp  cinnamon (optional)
2  cups  canola oil

Begin heating oil in a tall pot on a medium setting, or use a deep fryer and heat oil to 350 degrees. It is important that the oil is hot before placing the dough balls in to fry.

While oil is heating, peel and finely chop one small apple. Mix together rice flour, chopped apple, applesauce, salt and 3 Tbsp. sugar. Gradually stir in the rice milk - 1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. Mixture will be very crumbly, but should easily form into small 1-2 inch balls. If mixture seems too dry, add additional rice milk 1 teaspoon at a time.

Gently place dough balls into your hot oil, (best to use a spoon and gently ease the dough balls into the oil, so they don't fall apart) and deep fry for approximately 3-4 minutes. Turn the dough balls so they get evenly browned on both sides. Once turned, allow to deep fry for an additional 1-3 minutes, watching closely. When finished, dough balls will look lightly browned.

Remove dough balls with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate to soak off excess oil. Allow to cool slightly, while mixing together 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon. Roll warm dough balls in sugar/cinnamon mixture and serve. Best tasting when still warm, soft and fresh!
