“This is the recipe my momma always used when she would make her fried apple pies. I know it has to be at least 50 years old! I can remember coming in from school and my momma would be frying these and the smell, OMG! These are delicious when made with a dried apple filling. In the fall when the apples were abundant, we made our own dried apples specifically for this purpose. Of course, an applie pie was pretty good too! THANKS MOMMA ;-} Preparation time does not include chilling time. THIS RECIPE DOUBLES EASILY TO MAKE 12 PIES.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter and shortening into the flour mixture a little at a time until it resembles a coarse meal. This makes for a flakier crust. Blend in the ice water a little at a time. Depending on the humidity of your house, it may take more or less ice water. Form the pastry into a ball, cover, and let chill overnight in refrigerator.
  2. The next day, let the pastry sit until it reaches room temperature. Roll out a golf size ball of pastry into a round. Fill with 2 1/2 teaspoons of desired filling. Seal the edges with a fork. Dip the pie into milk. Fry in hot shortening or oil in a cast iron skillet. Drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  3. ENJOY ;~}.
