My Grandmother used to make these pies every Thanksgiving and Christmas and they always symbolized the holidays for me. She called them Washington Pies (probably because we are from the Mt. Vernon, VA area). She also had an applesauce filling that noone has been able to duplicate. But, not being one to have a lot of time on my hands, I have made a pretty good "quick" version of this. I use pre-made pie crusts, all natural & thick raspberry or apricot preserves, and crisco is a MUST for the frying. They assemble pretty fast which is important because as soon as you sprinkle them with powdered sugar, they disappear! I enjoyed very much Elaine's recipe and hope she doesn't mind I added mine!
