Fried Apple Pies

John LOVES pie, so to beat the summer heat...we tried this recipe. It is not as good as a regular flaky-crusted apple pie, but they are good! I froze the remaining pies and sent them in John's lunches.

Recipe from: Recipezaar

3 cups flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons shortening
1 egg
3/4 cup milk

1 quart Apple Pie Filling
powdered sugar

Preheat oil for frying.

In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, together. Cut in shortening. Gradually add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, working it to make a thick dough.

Break the dough into 12 equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough pieces into thin rounds, about 5 inches in diameter.

Put 1/4 cup of apple pie filling in the center of each round, fold over and crimp the edges with a fork.

Fry the pies, two to three at a time, in the hot oil, until golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Powder the pies with the powdered sugar. May serve with vanilla ice cream.
