Directions

  1. Preheat oil for frying.
  2. In a sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the apples and saute for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/4 cup sugar, and brown sugar. Continue sauteing for 1 minute, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.
  4. Add the water and lemon juice. Bring the liquid up to a boil.
  5. Add corn starch dissolved in 1 Tablespoon of water.
  6. Whisk the vanilla and slurry into the liquid. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  7. In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, together.
  8. Gradually add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, working it to make a thick dough.
  9. Break the dough into 12 equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough pieces into thin rounds, about 5 inches in diameter.
  10. Put 1/4 cup of the mixture in the center of each round, fold over and crimp the edges with a fork.
  11. Fry the pies, two to three at a time, in the hot oil, until golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  12. Powder the pies with the powdered sugar. May serve with vanilla ice cream.
