I was disappointed in this. The dough had no flavor and took almost twice as long to brown. I will have to try a different rec. and see if I get the same results.
I made this with butter, since we don't use shortening at all. The dough turned out very nice and flaky, sort of like croissnats, but fried. Next day the pies were still nice and crispy, not soggy at all. I also made fried dried apple pies and will use this for other fired pies as well. But it sure is heavy hitting.
This was such a great recipe for Fried dried apple pies. My family just kept on bragging about them. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe.
