Fried Pies

Fried Apple Pies

September 1, 2017

After trying several dough recipes, I came up with this.

2 ½ cups plain flour      

1 T. baking powder

1 t. salt

1 T sugar

2 T. Crisco

1 ½ T butter

½ cup buttermilk

½ cup skim milk

Sift dry ingredients.  Cut Crisco and butter into dry ingredients with a pastry cutter.

Stir in milk only until all dry ingredients are wet. 

On a floured surface, lightly knead the dough a few times.  Cut dough into 14 or 15 equal size balls.

Gently roll each ball into a circle, about 6” diameter.

Place about 2 T dried apple in each circle. 

Fry in electric skillet at 350-375 degrees with about ¼” oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
