Ingredients

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening, plus more for frying
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk, more if needed
  • Apple pie filling, canned
  • Cherry pie filling, canned
  • Powdered sugar, for sprinkling

Method

Step 1

To make the pastry, mix together the flour, granulated sugar and salt. Cut in 1 cup of the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1 of the eggs and the buttermilk and stir until it just comes together. Add a little more buttermilk if needed. Form it into a ball and refrigerate for at least an hour. 

Step 2

To make the pies, roll the pastry out into a large square. Trim the edges to make a rectangle. Cut into 8 to 10 long rectangles, using a butter knife. 

Step 3

Spoon a tablespoon or so of filling into the top half of one of the rectangles. 

Step 4

Use the remaining beaten eggs to seal the edges by folding the bottom half of the rectangle over the top. Then crimp the edges shut with a fork. Repeat with the other pies, filling half with apple pie filling and half with cherry pie filling. 

Step 5

Heat shortening in a medium, deep saucepan over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F. Fry the pies until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove and immediately drain on paper towels. 

Step 6

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
