Crab Corn Fritters

A shout out to my friend Beth who helped with this one.  She being from Louisiana and knows something about fried dough.  These are not your old fashion fritter like my Dad made that were at least three pounds each these are light and airy.  My wife who is not a big fried food fan gave me a thumbs up on this one.  In Northern Virginia we are blessed to have a big supply of blue crab.  As many of you have seen I have a lot of recipes with crab.
