Original recipe makes 6 to 8 fried pies
  • For the Pastry:
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1/2 cup shortening, chilled
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 cup cold water
  • For the Apple Filling:
  •  2 apples
  •  1/4 cup white sugar, or to taste
  •  1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
  •  oil for frying

  1. Sift flour and salt together. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time and mix with fork. When the flour mixture is moistened, gather it into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Peel and dice the apples and place them in a saucepan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon; pour over the apples and toss to coat. Cook, covered, in a saucepan on low heat. Cook until soft, then mash with fork to form a thick applesauce. Allow to cool.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thick and cut rounds with a large cookie cutter (4 inches in diameter).
  4. In each round, place 1 heaping tablespoon fruit. Moisten edges with cold water, fold in half, and press edge with a fork to seal. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
  5. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  6. Fry the pies, a few at a time, 2 to 3 minutes on each side; cook until the crust is golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
