Fried Apple Pies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and chilled
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, chilled
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 4 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut in butter and shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball. Divide dough in half and wrap each half in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together apples, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a 12-inch circle. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut out circles of dough. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Fill each circle with a spoonful of apple mixture, then fold in half and seal edges with a fork.
  6. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pies and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  7. Transfer pies to a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
