How to make it

  • In large bowl, place flour, baking powder, salt, sugar
  • Whisk all together
  • Cut in CRISCO as in a pie crust with pastry blender or fork
  • Add milk, stir and "gather up" as in pie crust pastry
  • Chill for a few minutes
  • Roll out like pastry, fairly thin
  • Cut into circles*, (the lid of the Crisco can is perfect)
  • Place choice of filling on one half of the circle, not quite going to the edge
  • Bring other half over the filling to the edge
  • Seal the edges of the pastry with a fork dipped in water
  • Meanwhile heat about a half inch of Crisco solid shortening in an iron skillet, (preferably) and carefully
  • Lift pies with a spatula and *carefully, carefully* place in hot oil
  • Watch *carefully*, and turn when golden brown
  • Watch *carefully * again, and when other side is golden brown
  • remove with spatula
  • Place on paper towel to drain
  • Sprinkle each cooked fried pie with granulated sugar
  • *MAY CUT DIFFERENT SIZE CIRCLES, USING A BISCUIT CUTTER, SAUCER, ETC.
  • These are simply delicious! Hard to explain how very good! Just try them and see!

    In my part of the world (New Mexico) we call pies like this....empanadas! Nothing better no matter where one lives! The fillings are left up to the imagination, be it meat or fruit...they are all melt in your mouth delicious.

    The only thing better than pie is FRIED PIE. I could make these with a peach or sweet potato filling. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing. :)
