Fried Apple Pies
Yield: 12 servings

2 tablespoons butter
2 pounds apples, cored and diced
1/2 t cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup water
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 t vanilla
1 tablespoon cornstarch

3 cups flour
2 t sugar
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
6 tablespoons shortening
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
powdered sugar

Preheat oil for frying. In a sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the
apples and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/4
cup sugar, and brown sugar. Continue sauteing for 1 minute, stirring
constantly to dissolve the sugar. Add the water and lemon juice.
Bring the liquid up to a boil. Add cornstarch dissolved in 1
Tablespoon of water. Whisk the vanilla and slurry into the liquid.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, or until
the apples are soft. Remove from heat and cool completely.

In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder,
together. Gradually add the egg mixture to the flour mixture,
working it to make a thick dough. Break the dough into 12 equal
portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough pieces into
thin rounds, about 5 inches in diameter. Put 1/4 cup of the mixture
in the center of each round, fold over and crimp the edges with a
fork. Fry the pies, two to three at a time, in the hot oil, until
golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
Powder the pies with the powdered sugar. May serve with vanilla
ice cream.
