Amish Fry Pies Recipe

 Whether you are at the Haiti Auction in Mt. Hope, Ohio, the Berlin Harvest Festival, or any other event where the Amish have booths, you will find fried pies.

Recipe for Amish Fry Pies:

Pie Dough:
2 C. white pastry flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 T. sugar
6 T. butter
1/3 C. milk
1 egg yolk

2 cups pie filling of choice

2 T. warm water
1 T. corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
Powdered sugar until thickened to flowing consistency

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and butter with pastry cutter until slightly lumpy.  Beat egg yolk with milk and add to the flour mixture.  Stir with fork and pat into a ball.  Knead as little as possible.  Form into 8-9 small balls.  Roll out between two pieces of thick plastic.  Fill with 1/4 cup pie filling. Fold over and press edges with tines of a fork.  Moisten edges with egg whites before sealing.  Deep fry at 375 degrees for two minutes, then glaze.
