Serves 6-8 pies | Prep Time 30 | Cook Time 5

Ingredients

2 apples, cored, peeled and diced
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cups shortening
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup oil
Garnish: powdered sugar


Stir together apples, sugar, and cinnamon. Cook over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until apples are tender. Set aside. Combine flour and salt; cut in shortening with a fork. Stir in water to a dough consistency. Roll out dough 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface. Cut out with a 4-inch round cookie cutter; place one tablespoon apple mixture in center of each circle. Sprinkle edges with water; fold circles in half. Seal edges with a fork; set aside. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry pies, a few at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm.

Notes

This is for apple pies, but can use any fresh fruit or pie filling, if in a hurry. I've used apple butter or jams. I made chocholate pudding ones, was a big hit for the pie sale!
