- Fried apple pies
from allrecipes.com and then changed a little.
6 cups all purpose flour
2 cups of shortening
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/4 cups cold water or less
2 tablespoons of vinegar ..mix with water
1/2 cup of sugar
8-9 apples, Granny smith or Jonagold
1 cup of white sugar
2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups or more of Crisco shortening for frying pies in.
***** Have the Criso heated to 350° -375° when you start forming the pies.
1. Peel and thickly slice apples
add sugar , cinnamon and butter.
Cook until tender, but still firm.
Let cool before putting on dough.
2. Sift flour and salt and sugar together. Cut in the shortening. Add water/vinegar a little at a time and mix with a fork.
Refrigerate while apples cool.
3. Roll out to about 1/8 inch thick on a floured board. Cut to about a 6" circle. Use a small saucer, place dough on it.
4. Put a couple of tablespoons of apples on half the dough that is on the saucer . Moisten edge with a little cold water and fold over. Press edge lightly with a fork. Cut excess dough off . Save to use for other pies.
Heat Crisco in a 10" or 12" dutchoven. 350°-375° Carefully slide pie into hot Criso. Fry pies 2 at a time, 2-3 minutes on each side. cook until golden brown. drain on paper towels.
*** Use a dutchoven, less oily spatters than using a cast iron skillet. Seasons the dutchoven nicely too.
I found too, I raised my kitchen table up about 4" using some cans Under the table legs.. It helps not to have to bend over so much when rolling out the dough. A lot easier on the olde back.
