Fried Apple Pies

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

For the crust:
3 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
6 tablespoons of shortening
1 egg
3/4 cup of milk
Powdered sugar

Preheat oil in a skillet for frying.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the apples and cook for 2 minutes.
Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup of brown sugar.
Continue cooking for 1 minute, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.
Add the water and lemon juice.
Bring the liquid to a boil and add the cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of cold water.
Whisk the vanilla and the cornstarch mixture 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 allow to cool completely.


Mix together the shortening, egg, and 3/4 cup of milk.
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. Divide 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 apple mixture in the center of each round, fold the dough 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.
