How to make it

  • In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in enough milk until dough clings together. Roll in ball and wrap in plastic wrap and chill 30 minutes or longer. Cut dough into 16 pieces. Shape each into ball, with floured rolling pan - roll each into 4 1/2 inch circle. Put rounded tablespoon of apples in center of each. Moisten edges of dough with milk. Fold dough in half to form semi-circles. Press curved edge with tip of floured fork to seal. Turn pie over, press edge of other side. In 3 quart sauce pan heat about 1/2 inch of oil to 375 degrees. Fry 2 to 3 pies at a time until golden brown (about 1 minute). Turn with tongs. Drain on paper towel.

    Turned out well. Used cotton seed oil. I like your pastry dough. It turned out better than my first try at fried pies.
