Preparation Directions
  • Step 1Combine apples, raisins and 1/3 cup water in a heavy saucepan. Cook over high heat until mixture comes to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Simmer an additional 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • Step 2Combine flour and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened and dough can be gathered into a ball.
  • Step 3Divide dough in half. Roll one half to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using a 5-inch cutter (or 5-inch bowl), cut 6 circles from each half. (Re-roll scraps as necessary.)
  • Step 4Heat shortening to 365ºF in a deep saucepan or deep fryer.
  • Step 5Place about 1 tablespoon of apple filling on each dough circle. Moisten edges with water. Fold in half over filling, pressing with fork to seal.
  • Step 6Fry a few pies at a time about 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Serve warm or cool.
