In a medium bowl, mix together the milk, flour, egg, baking power and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir until smooth.
Place the remaining sugar and cinnamon on a plate; stir to combine.
Heat 1 inch of oil in a pot to 350 degrees F.
Dip each apple slice into the batter, then add to the pot of oil. Cook 4-5 apple slices at a time for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally.
Remove the apples from the oil and immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Repeat the process with the remaining apples.
Serve your apple fries immediately with caramel sauce. Garnish with mint sprigs if desired.

Be sure to cut your apples into similar sized wedges so that they cook at the same rate.
It's important to use a deep frying thermometer to make sure that your oil isn't overly hot or overly cold. If the oil is too cold the apples will absorb more grease, and if it's too hot the fries could burn.
