Fried Pies

Recipe Ingredients


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons Crisco

Water (to moisten)

Prepared filling of your choice


3 cups fresh or well-drained canned fruit

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

Note: You may use ready-made pastry for two pies in lieu of the Crust.


Crust: Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in Crisco. Roll dough out to 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured board. Cut into 6-inch circles or invert a saucer and use as a cutting guide.

Fill the dough. Fold circle in half, using water to moisten dough at edges for a tight seal.

Deep fry at 375 degrees F.

Sprinkle with sugar while still hot, if desired.

Filling: Place fruit in saucepan. Separately mix sugar and flour, then blend with fruit. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar has melted and syrup has thickened. Set aside.
