Basic Fried Fruit Pie Recipe

Author/Submitted by: Jo Anne Merrill
Servings: 1
Categories: Desserts / Fruits / Pies & Pastries

2  cups  flour
1  teaspoon  salt
1/2  cup  shortening, solid
1/3  cup  water
    mixed fruit, dried, stewed

* Dried fruit which has been stewed and then sweetened is the traditional filling. The most common fruits used are dried apples and peaches. Sift the flour and salt together, cut in the shortening and mix with forks. Add water, a little at a time, while tossing flour mixture with large fork. Roll out about 1/8 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut about 4 inches in diameter. In each round, place 1-1/2 tablespoons cooked and sweetened mashed fruit (dried apricots, peaches, prunes or applesauce). Moisten edges with cold water; fold to make semi-circle and press edges together with a fork. Fry in solid shortening melted to a depth of about 1/2 inch, or deep fry. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. If you wish, you can also make a sauce of powdered sugar, margarine and milk to drizzle over pies. NOTES : Fried pies are a southern United States tradition, eaten warm or cold. By KKBG35A RUTH BURKHAR
