Recipe by 80sguy
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • For Pudding: Mix sugar flour and salt together with a whisk. Add milk and microwave until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Quickly add egg yolks, whisking away so they don't cook too fast. Cook another minute or until thick.
  • Add butter and vanilla, whisk again until smooth.
  • You may make this on the stove if you don't like the microwave idea, but be sure to stir so the bottom doesn't burn.
  • Cover with plastic wrap (so a film will not form on top) and let cool.
  • For Crust: Stir salt into flour. Measure shortening and cut into flour with a fork or pastry blender until the dough texture is like peas. Add a few drops of green food color to 1/4 cup water and mix.
  • Add and stir to flour mixture until ingredients hold together and color turns green.
  • Roll dough out onto a floured surface.
  • Divide into ten balls.
  • Roll each ball into a circle and add 1/4 cup or less of filling in the center of the circle.
  • Fold dough in half over filling and crimp edges. Don't get any filling on the edge or it might leak out and ruin the pie.
  • Cook in hot (Crisco) shortening at least an inch deep in your skillet, set at 375 degrees, frying about 4 minutes per side.
  • Important: use a pancake turner or other utensil that will hold the pie, as you don't want it to crack and leak filling when you cook it or you will have a mess. Be careful with the hot grease, it will boil up if the filling leaks.
  • For glaze: in a large mixing bowl, combine all glaze ingredients until smooth. While pies are still warm, dip them into glaze. Allow pies to drip on wire racks until cool.
