    winkki's Note:

    Published in the local paper, this is a recipe from the Rather Sweet Bakery in the Texas hill country. Better than Hostess Pies! :o) If you prefer to bake your pies instead of frying them, directions are at the bottom.

      The filling was fine for me but the pastry was not very good. I did bake mine and it's definitely possible that I overworked my dough. I probably won't be making these again. Thank you for sharing though and I am glad everyone else has success :)!

      What a treat! We really enjoyed these fried pies. I made some with peaches and some with apples, and doubled the recipe for the dough. Sure brings back memories of my younger days when my grandma would make these for us! So glad to have found this recipe. Thank you for sharing it Winkki!

      Outsanding recipe! Scaled it down to make about 3 pies. I made 2 and used the rest of the "scrap" dough to make little cinnamon roll cookies. Baked these pastries for about 22 minutes or so. I used apples that I sliced and put in the microwave to make a filling. This is a def. repeat. Oh yeah I chilled the dough for around an hour before rolling out between wax paper.
