Serves 12 pies | Prep Time 30min | Cook Time 5min


1 can (16 ounces) cling peach slices, drained and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon red cinnamon candies
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup cold water
peanut oil for frying for deep frying
Granulated sugar for garnish

Set chopped peaches on paper towels to drain.

In a microwave-safe bowl combine drained peaches, candies, sugar, cornstarch, and nutmeg. Microwave on high for 1 minute.


Microwave 1 minute more.

Stir until candies are dissolved.

Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl combine flour and salt.

Cut in Crisco with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened and dough can be gathered into a ball.

Divide dough in half.

Roll to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface.

Using a 5-inch cutter (or 5-inch bowl), cut 6 circles from each half. (Re-roll scraps as necessary.)

Heat peanut oil to 365ºF in a deep saucepan or deep fryer.

Place 1 tablespoon of filling on each dough circle.

Moisten edges with water.

Fold in half over filling; seal with fork.

Fry a few pies at a time for 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Cool for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
