Dried Apples Sugar Flour Shortening Butter Ice Water
Add apples into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down so the apples simmer. Cook until the apples are tender and juicy. Allow to cool.
Mix together the shortening, butter, and flour. Add some ice water to the dough and mix until it's sticky. Sprinkle some more flour and knead the dough until smooth. Pinch some dough off to form ping pong sized dough balls.
Roll the dough out and add some of the apple mix to one side. Add some water to the edges of the dough and fold over. Use a fork to crimp the edges.
Add shortening and butter to a skillet. Heat until it sizzles. Add pies and cook until golden brown on both sides. Place on some paper towels. Serve & Enjoy!
"I've eaten many fried pies that were made by my mom & grandmother, but the pies I made just didn't live up to theirs. My crust was either bland or tough. That is until I found this recipe! They are awesome!!!! Crisp around the edges, slightly soft in the center & FLAKY. Thank you for sharing."
