Spiced Fried Apple Pies

By

Fried apple pies are typically made with dried apples. Serve these fried apple pies with ice cream or whipped cream.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dried apples
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted or stirred before measuring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • oil for deep frying

Preparation:

Cover dried apples with water; simmer, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes. Drain and let cool.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder; cut in butter. Add eggs and milk; mix to form a soft dough. Roll dough out thin and cut into 4 circles about 5 inches in diameter.

Combine nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar.

Place 1/2 cup dried apples in the center of each circle, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the sugar mixture, then fold over. Wet edges with a little milk and seal with a fork. Fry at about 370° in deep fryer until golden brown. Drain well. Serve with cream or ice cream.
