Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 box ready-made pie crusts (recommended: Pillsbury)
  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla ice cream, for topping

Method

Step 1

To a large saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the brown sugar, and the apples and saute until they are tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Drizzle in the maple syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Continue cooking for 5 minutes more until the apples are completely softened. Remove them from the pan and allow them to cool while you prepare the dough.

Step 2

Roll out both pieces of pie dough onto a floured surface. Cut out eight 6-inch circles and lay them out onto a parchment-lined sheet tray. Put a heaping tablespoon of the apple pie filling into the center of each round Fold the circles in half and seal their edges with the tines of a fork.

Step 3

In a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat enough peanut oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 350 degrees F.

Step 4

Whisk together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and reserve.

Step 5

Fry the pies, 3 at a time, in the hot peanut oil until they are golden brown and crisp, about 3 minutes. Transfer the finished pies to a paper towel-lined sheet tray. Once they are cool, toss them in the cinnamon sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream.
