  1. Sift flour and salt together. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cold water 1 tablespoon at a time and mix with fork. When the flour mixture is moistened, gather it into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Peel and dice the apples and place them in a saucepan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon; pour over the apples and toss to coat. Cook, covered, in a saucepan on low heat. Cook until soft, then mash with fork to form a thick applesauce. Allow to cool.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thick and cut rounds with a large cookie cutter (4 inches in diameter).
  4. In each round, place 1 heaping tablespoon fruit. Moisten edges with cold water, fold in half, and press edge with a fork to seal. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.
  5. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  6. Fry the pies, a few at a time, 2 to 3 minutes on each side; cook until the crust is golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

I gave this recipe only one star because my fried apple pies fell apart during cooking, and the pastry tasted like shortening...i followed the recipe exactly so idk what happened :/

Very good recipe, the apples came out delicious! I too got lazy and used Grands biscuits. I also baked these instead of frying them. I melted butter in a stoneware pan, coated the pies on bot...

OK...so I was a little sceptical.. I admit I love Mc Donalds fried apple pies.... and these are BETTER! They also free from all the preservatives, flavor modifiers and colors those guys put in. ...

O.K. Melissa, I'll admit it, I definitely cheated a bit with this recipe. After making two loaves of bread I wasn't in the mood to make yet another dough, so I took out a can of Grands flaky bis...

The taste of these were great. I used my own dough recipie. (1/2c. butter, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 1/2c. flour and up to 1/2c. cold water). The only thing I had problem with was my dough melting when...

I love McDonalds fried apple pies but my nearest McDonalds is a loooong way away. I've been looking for a recipe to make similar ones at home and here it is! These pies came out DELICIOUS!!! Th...

YUM! Everyone LOVED these!!!! The only change I made though was that I added vanilla, cinnamon, and ground ginger to the dough since some people's reviews said that it didn't have enough flavor....

This is the easist recipe to follow. I have never made the crust from scratch before. I have always used canned biscuits. Never again. This is the best.

Memories are made of this.... Just like Mammaw use to make...
