Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

"The truly dangerous man dresses inconspicuously and is soft- spoken. He walks away from most confrontations. The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986

I love fried pies. My mother made the best ones with dried apples, peaches, or apricots.

Here's her secret recipe.
2 cups of flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons Crisco
Add ice water to make a firm ball
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate a minimum of 3 hours, preferably overnight.
Don't skip the refrigeration, it's essential for a good flaky crust.

Put an 8 ounce package of dried fruit in a sauce pan, cover with water, bring to a boil then turn off heat and let soak for 30 minutes. Then add 1/2 cup of sugar and bring back up to a simmer for 5 minutes.
Note: You're only going to use about half of the fruit so you can put the rest in a container and freeze to use for your next batch.

Roll out dough and cut into 6 inch circles put in a big spoonful of fruit,(like the guy said, don't overfill) fold and seal edges.
Fry in hot oil in a skillet until golden brown turning once.
Makes 8 pies.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

The one convenience store junk food I'm a sucker for are the Hostess Fruit pies.

Your mom's recipe sounds real good.

I also want to try that guy's sourdough pie crust for them. Combined with the blueberries and cream cheese....oh, man.

I agree with the frying being the better way to make them. It may not be the healthier way, but it sure tastes better. It's not like we are making health food, anyway.
