How to make it

  • Pie Dough:
  • Mix flour, salt, baking powder & baking soda together; cut in Crisco (or lard) with pastry cutter until mixture is course crumbs.
  • Add buttermilk and stir until well combined.
  • Turn dough on to lightly floured board or pastry cloth.
  • Knead gently until smooth, roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut circles with three inch pastry cutter; makes 16 circles (my sister uses a small saucer to make circles).
  • Filling:
  • Place all ingredients into heavy skillet and cook down on medium heat until apples are syrupy.
  • Scoop a couple of tablespoons apple filling into center of circle, fold over and wet edges with water; seal together by pressing edges together with fork.
  • Fry in hot corn oil on medium heat two at a time until golden brown.
  • Place on paper towel to drain and cool.
  • Serve warm or cold.
  • Sprinkle with powder sugar if desired.

    I love a fried apple pie, and I must add that I love lard in pie crusts! It makes the most flaky and tender of crusts. I can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing!
