These pies are very yummy!! The dough is easy to work with and has a very fresh taste. I made an assortment of flavors, cherry, apple, pineapple, and mince meat. Then I dusted some with powdered sugar, and dipped some in a glaze. I liked the glazed ones best. These are better than Hostess! Thanks for a teriffic recipe, Darlene.
