Southern Fried Hand Pies Recipe
Fried pies are so darned delicious. They are easy to make and turn out perfectly every time if you follow my recipe. Some people call these kinds of pies hand pies or fried pies...we just call them Southern Fried Hand Pies. No matter what you call them, they are wonderful. You can use homemade pie filling like we did or just open up a can of store bought. They are truly delicious!
Southern Fried Hand Pie Recipe
5 c. flour
1 c. shortening
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
For the glaze:
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix all the ingredients together (except for the pie filling) until you have a nice dough. Pinch off the dough about the size of a golf ball. Roll out and fill with 1-2 tablespoons of your pie filling. Or you can roll out the dough to about 1" thick and use a small bowl to cut the dough into circles (about 5" around) and then fill each circle with the pie filling. Moisten the edges with a bit of water and fold over. Press the edges with a fork dipped in flour to help seal each one. It gives them a pretty edge too.
Deep fry in hot oil. We just used my cast iron skillet for this. Glaze them with a glaze.
To make the glaze, combine the ingredients with just enough milk to make a nice and thick glaze. Drizzle over the top of hot pies and enjoy.
These go perfectly with some Homemade Ice Cream!
