Pear Fritters

From "The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook"

Batter may be used for sliced fresh apples or bananas, or canned pineapple

1 egg, beaten
1/2 C milk
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 C self-rising flour
1 C sour cream
1/4 C vegetable oil
3 pears, peeled, cored and sliced horizontally

Combine the beaten egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Mix well and add sour cream. Heat 2 tablespoons oil to 375 degrees. Dip pears in batter, carefully place in oil, and cook 1-2 minutes. Turn and cook 1-2 minutes more. Add oil as needed. Remove fritters and drain. May be sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.
