Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shortening
1/3 cup boiling water
1 cup cherry pie filling
Oil for deep-fat frying
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup whipped topping


In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times.


Divide dough into four portions; roll each into an 8-in. circle. Place 1/4 cup of pie filling in the center of each circle. Fold dough over filling; secure with toothpicks.


In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry pies, folded side down, in oil for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn and fry 2-3 minutes longer. Drain on paper towels. Remove toothpicks. Serve with syrup and whipped topping. Yield: 4 servings.
