Felicia Batten’s Fried Pies


  • 2 c sifted self-rising flour
  • 1/4 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 Tbsp Crisco
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c evaporated milk
  • canned fruit (apples, peaches or pears)
  1. Into the flour, baking powder and salt cut in the Crisco. Mix egg yolk, milk and sugar then add to the flour mixture.
  2. With a rolling pin, roll out to a quarter inch on a floured surface. Cut in 4 inch squares.
  3. Spoon on a little bit of fruit, remembering that you are going to fold them point to point, so they’ll come out like triangles. Fold over the fruit and seal edges with a fork. Repeat till all the dough is gone.
  4. Fry in a skillet with about an inch of very hot shortening until brown
