These fun fries are sweet, not savory and kids love this nutritious fool food! Trick your family this April Fool’s Day with these sweet and delicious apple “french fries” served with strawberry preserve “ketchup” for dipping.
I used Kiku apples for this recipe, not just because they are fun to say, but they are the perfect sweetness, nice and large for chopping, and hold up well when cooked. These guys look like apples on steroids. 😉
Using a crinkle cutter makes them look all the more deceiving.
Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar before baking in the oven.
