  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chilled shortening

Apple Filling:

  • 2 medium apples
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • Oil for frying


  1. Combine the sifted salt and flour. Add the shortening and blend with a pastry cutter until a coarse crumb mixture is formed.
  2. Moisten the flour mixture with 1 tablespoon of water and mix with a fork. Form a ball from the moist mixture, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Dice the peeled apples and place them in a saucepan. Add the cinnamon and sugar and toss to coat the apples. Cover the saucepan and cook over low heat until the apples are soft. Mash the softened apples with a fork until they form a thick applesauce. Allow it to cool.
  4. Dust your work surface with flour and place the dough on it. Roll out the dough and use a large cookie cutter to cut out rounds approximately 4 inches in diameter.
  5. Moisten the edges with cold water and add 1 tablespoon of the fruit filling to each round. Fold in half and seal by pressing the edge with a fork. Repeat with the remaining rounds.
  6. Heat oil in a large saucepan until it reaches 190 degrees C.
  7. Finally, add the pies to the hot oil and fry each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Enjoy!
