I love corn, any form of it!

Hands-on Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: About 18

These sweet, bite-size appetizers can be made a few hours ahead of time and stored, in a single layer, on a covered baking sheet at room temperature. To reheat the crisps, simply remove their cover and slide them into the oven at 400° for 5 to 7 minutes.

What you’ll need
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (about 3 ears, if using fresh corn; after the kernels are removed from the cob, precook them in the microwave for 3 minutes)
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
canola or vegetable oil

How to make it
In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, cumin, sugar, and cayenne. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until they are just blended. Fold in the corn and scallions.

Pour oil into a large nonstick skillet (it should come about 1/4 inch up the sides of the pan) and heat it until the oil is shimmering. For each crisp, drop a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter into the oil, flattening it slightly with the back of the spoon.

Fry them in batches over medium-high heat until they are golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn them over and fry them until the other side is golden, about 2 minutes more. Transfer the crisps to a paper towel–lined sheet pan, sprinkling them immediately with a bit of salt. Repeat with the remaining batter.
