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.

Fabulous recipe! I had some homemade freezer peach preserves and wonderful ripe Texas peaches and the filling was to die for. Used the food processor to make the dough then chilled before rolling between sheets of wax paper. Got 8 pies exactly and baked on parchment for a few more minutes until lightly browned. I highly suggest parchment in case the filling leaks, much easier cleanup. Made a simple glaze with some left over preserves and powdered sugar. Crust was nice and tender. I'm sure frying would be even tastier. Thanks, winkki, for a great recipe!

These are delightful; thank you for sharing. I made them for 4th of July picnic under the fireworks so as not to need plates, forks etc., they were a big hit, especially with DS. I used half shortening in the dough because I was concerned how they would handle and I was in hurry. They were easy. Next time I'll try all butter though. I baked them and although frying them sounds decadent, I may just have to try that too. Thanks again!

This is just a lovely recipe. The filling, with the peach preserves, is DIVINE. No additional sugar needed. I thought 1 Tbsp sounded like too little for each circle, but it's the perfect amount - the circles are small & cute! I baked these, and it took about 20 min in my oven. I made 1 1/2 times the amount of pastry & used a chocolate filling for some non-fruit dinner guests ;) My dinner guests & hubby loved them, and I'm taking the leftovers to work tomorrow. Thanks, winkki the new mommy! ;) xoxo
