Fried Apple-Peach Pies

No recipe image available.Fried sweet pies are universally popular, and these fruity beauties are no exception. Just try to keep people out of the kitchen while you're making these.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups water
1 cup chopped dried peaches
1 cup chopped dried apples
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup milk

2 cups vegetable oil for frying pies

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Filling: Combine water, peaches and apples in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender and thickened. Stir in sugar, butter, nutmeg and salt; set aside.
  2. For Crust: Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle milk over flour mixture; stir until mixture forms a ball.
  3. Divide into 7 balls; roll each out on wax paper, one at at time, into a circle about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 6-inch circles. Divide fruit mixture among circles, about 2 tablespoons each. Moisten edges and fold in half, pressing edges together with a fork to seal.
  4. Heat oil to 375°F (190°C) in a large heavy skillet. Cook pies until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Drain well on paper towels. Serve hot. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Makes 7 individual fried pies.
