Fried.Apple.Pies. There is no more to say. Make them. Enjoy them. Break them up over a bowl of ice cream. Eat them with your loved ones and feel all the happy feelings. Make sure to use a large spatula when you pick them up to fry them, and also when you remove them from the oil. They are delicate and will remain delicate until they have cooled on a rack for about an hour.
Fried Apple Pies
2 boxes of refrigerated pie crust (2- 9 in. pie crust in each box)
8 granny smith apples, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons AP flour
1 cup sugar (I use half brown sugar and half granulated)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Dash of salt
4 tablespoons butter
Peel and chop the apples. Add them to a large bowl. Add the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to the apples, and toss. Heat a large nonstick skillet to medium low heat and add in the apples. Stir, and cover with a lid. Stir every 5 minutes until the apples are tender and then turn the heat off. This should take about 20 minutes. Allow the apples to cool completely. Dust a board with flour and roll out the pie dough. Use a rolling pin to make the circle of dough larger. In a small bowl whisk the egg. Using a spoon, make piles on top of the dough of the apple mix, use a pastry brush, or your fingers to rub the beaten egg around the edges of the piles. Roll out a second crust and place it over the top of the piles. Gently press the top dough around each pile and cut squares around them. Press the edges of the crust with a fork to seal the edges. I like to put the pies in the freezer for about 25 minutes before baking or frying. Fry the pie in canola oil for 3 minutes a side and let cool on a rack. Enjoy!
