One-Handed Fried Pies

Ingredients

Directions

  1. For filling, in a small saucepan combine fruit and apple cider. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until fruit is tender and cider is nearly absorbed. Mash slightly; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, for pastry, in a medium bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1/4 cup shortening until pieces are pea size. Sprinkle buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, over flour mixture, gently tossing with a fork. Push moistened pastry to side of bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tablespoon buttermilk at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather flour mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together. Form pastry into a ball.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 15 inches in diameter. Using a 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut the pastry into six circles, rerolling dough as needed. Place about 1 tablespoon of the filling on half of each circle. Moisten edges of pastry circles with a little water. Fold rounds in half over filling; press edges with tines of a fork to seal.
  4. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet heat the 2 tablespoons shortening over medium-low heat. Fry the pies for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

From the Test Kitchen

* Tip:

To make 1/3 to 1/2 cup sour milk, place 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1/3 to 1/2 cup total liquid; stir. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.

Make-Ahead Directions:

Prepare as directed. Layer between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Freeze for up to 3 weeks. To serve, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap the frozen pies individually in foil and bake about 25 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
